Outnumbered

'Outnumbered' follows the battle of wills between two parents and their three young children, who are seemingly locked into a never-ending contest to see just whose patience will run out first.

Testing theories such as not buying broccoli to save money on the weekly shop, and whether or not Jesus should have used his superpowers to combat Herod, the kids ponder the imponderables in the part-improvised comedy that shows how living with kids can provide at turns the funniest and the most cringeworthy experiences available to us all. Many will recognise how the parents (Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner) are just attempting to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned...

Outnumbered is written, directed and produced by Andy Hamilton (It's Only a Theory, Trevor's World of Sport, Bedtime) and Guy Jenkin (Hacks, Bike Squad, Crossing The Floor). The Executive Producers are Jimmy Mulville for Hat Trick and Gregor Sharp for the BBC.
