Channel 4’s new comedy series Home will premiere on Tuesday March 5th at 9:45pm, it has been announced.
Created by Rufus Jones, Home follows the experience of Sami, a Syrian refugee who enters Britain illegally to claim asylum. Living in with Peter, Katy and John, Sami and his adoptive family discover and come to terms with what a home really means. The comedy series, which was initally piloted as a Blap, is produced by Channel X and stars Rufus Jones, Rebekah Staton, Oaklee Pendergast and Youssef Kerkour.
Speaking at the time that the series was commissioned last June, Channel 4’s Head of Comedy Fiona McDermott said: “Home got us with it’s heart and conviction to tell an important story about family, strangers, identity and the fragile ties that both bind us and pull us apart. It’s full of warmth, boldness and characters we hope viewers will really take to their hearts. We’re delighted to have it on Channel 4.”
