BBC Four’s new comedy series Bucket will premiere on Thursday April 13th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Bucket follows Fran, a reserved, high school history teacher in a rut; and Mim, an eccentric free spirit who believes 70 is the new 40. They are also mother and daughter and their relationship is not exactly easy. But when Mim reveals she is dying and wants to go on a road trip to tick items, one by one, off her preposterous bucket list, Fran feels that she has no choice but to come along for the ride.
The half-hour comedy series, which was commissioned by the BBC’s Controller of Comedy Commissioning Shane Allen and BBC Four Editor Cassian Harrison, consists of four episodes and was created by Frog Stone. It is produced for BBC Four by Solution 3 Productions and stars Stone as Fran and Miriam Margolyes as Mim. Katie Mavrolean (David Brent: Life on the Road) is the series producer, while Judy Counihan serves as the executive producer. Alex Moody is BBC Commissioning Executive.
