Liv­ing The Dream 9pm, Sky1

Sunday Herald Life - - TELEVISION & RADIO -

C REATED by Mick Ford (who pre­vi­ously wrote William And Mary and the David Ten­nant se­ries Sin­gle Fa­ther), this cul­ture-clash com­edy se­ries ben­e­fits from hav­ing a hugely watch­able pair of lead ac­tors in Philip Glenis­ter and the great Les­ley Sharp. They play hus­band and wife Mal and Jen Pem­ber­ton, who, along with their re­luc­tant teenage chil­dren (Rosie Day and Brenock O’Con­nor, aka Game Of Thrones’ Jon-Snow-stab­bing Olly), have upped sticks from their home in rainy York­shire to build a new life across the ocean in Florida, where Mal has bought a trailer park, rent­ing out RVs un­der the end­less blue skies and sun­shine. Trou­ble is, he’s bought the place with­out even see­ing it, and their dream be­gins to crum­ble as they set eyes on the site, and be­gin to get to know the var­i­ous ec­centrics who make up their clien­tele, a salty bunch of folks – in­clud­ing park busy­body Ai­den (Will & Grace’s Les­lie Jor­dan) and ex-wrestler Troy (played by real life ex-wrestler Kevin Nash) – whose idea of a good time in­volves bar­be­cued al­li­ga­tor, fresh from the swamps.
