Dawn breaks over UK sitcom
French (pictured) and EastEnders star June Brown are to star in a new British sitcom created by Great British Bake Off host Sue Perkins. Perkins will lead the cast of BBC2’s Heading Out, playing a successful vet who struggles to tell her parents she is gay. The program will also feature Perkins’ comedy partner and fellow Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc. In the show, Sara – played by Perkins – is given an ultimatum by her friends to come out to her parents after she turns 40. The six-part series screens in the UK next year.
Coming in 2013.
