Created and written by Holly Walsh (Motherland, Dead Boss) and Pippa Brown (Psychobitches, Bad Education). Starring Siobhan Finneran (Downton Abbey, Happy Valley), Rebecca Front (The Thick of It, Avenue 5), Ellie White (Inside No 9, The Windsors), Lauren Socha (Misfits, Catastrophe) and Amit Shah (Hospital People, Stag, W1A), as well as multi-episode guest stars Caroline Quentin and Stephen Tompkinson.
