BBC Two comedy pilot Alma’s Not Normal will premiere on Tuesday April 7th at 10pm, it has been announced.
Alma’s Not Normal follows Boltonian wild-child, Alma Nuthall and her family of eccentric, unruly women. After a recent break-up, Alma tries to get her life back on track. But with no job, no qualifications and a rebellious streak a mile wide, it’s not going to be easy.
Meanwhile her mum, who is battling a heroin addiction, has been sectioned for arson and her vampish Grandma Joan wants nothing to do with it. The comedy, which was created by Sophie Willan, is produced by Expectation and stars Sophie Willan, Siobhan Finneran, Lorraine Ashbourne, Jayde Adams and James Baxter. The pilot has been commissioned as part of the New On Two strand. Gill Isles is the producer, while Andrew Chaplin is directing. The executive producers are Sophie Willan and Nerys Evans. Kate Daughton is the Commissioning Editor for the BBC.
