BBC Three’s comedy drama Back To Life will premiere on Monday April 15th at 10am, when all six will be available via the iPlayer. The show will also be getting a linear run on BBC One from Monday April 15th at 10:35pm.
Back To Life tells the story of Miri Matteson, a woman who did a very bad thing a long time ago. So bad in fact, that she went to prison for 18 years because of it. Miri’s first few weeks out of prison find her navigating her way as a naïve but determined Adult Beginner, trying (and frequently failing) to lead a normal life in her picturesque but claustrophobic seaside hometown. She attempts to rekindle old relationships, make new ones, look for work and readjust to life outside, whilst desperately waiting for the world to forget about what happened that fateful night.
The six episode comedy drama, which was created by Daisy Haggard and Laura Solon, is produced by Two Brothers Pictures and stars Daisy Haggard (Episodes), Geraldine James (Sherlock Holmes), Adeel Akhtar (Murdered By My Father), Richard Durden (Harlots), Jamie Michie (Game of Thrones), Liam Williams (Pls Like), Souad Faress (Bridget Jones’s Baby), Jo Martin (Been So Long), Christine Bottomley (The End of the F***ing World) and Frank Feys (A Perfect Day). The executive producers are Harry and Jack Williams, Sarah Hammond, Daisy Haggard, Laura Solon and Christopher Sweeney. Debbie Pisani is the series producer, while Christopher Sweeney is the director.
