BBC One’s newest comedy series Father Figure will premiere on Wednesday September 18th at 10:35pm, it has been announced.
Created by Jason Byrne, Father Figure follows Tom Whyte, the best and worst dad you could have. He approaches his duties as a father with a huge dose of energy and enthusiasm, but his schemes and plans often descend into chaos and confusion. He’s the kind of dad all kids would want and the kind of dad that all men would secretly like to be. The six episode comedy series is produced by BBC In-House Comedy and stars Byrne, Pauline McLynn (Shameless), Karen Taylor (I’m Karen Taylor) Michael Smiley (Luther), Dermot Crowley (Bleak House), Tim Downie (The King’s Speech), David Reed, Margaret Cabourn-Smith and Peter Serafinowicz.
