BBC Two’s new comedy series Don’t Forget The Driver will premiere on Tuesday April 9th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Don’t Forget The Driver is set in Bognor Regis and follows a group of people struggling with their place in the world, their own sense of identity, and reveals how, in one single moment, even in the most ordinary of lives, an accidental encounter can change the course of everything. Coach driver and single dad Peter Green lives a life of ordinary routine; clip on ties, limp packed lunches, vehicle checks, round-trip coach journeys ferrying church groups to donkey sanctuaries and Japanese tourists to Canterbury Cathedral.
Green is at full stretch just about coping with his disaffected daughter Kayla and Audrey, his mum, whose life is rapidly descending into confusion and fear. The discovery of a dead body on the docile Bognor shoreline and an unsettling meeting with a new arrival in town throws Green’s life into chaos – a lost soul in need of assistance, who he could help. But will he? Can he? The comedy series is produced by Sister Pictures and stars Toby Jones, Erin Kellyman, Marcia Warren, Jo Eaton Kent and Danny Kirrane.
