Katherine Parkinson is set to star in a new sitcom about a group of 30- and 40-something housemates called Semi Detached.
The show will also feature Stephen Tompkinson and Ralf Little and the pilot episode will be filmed in May.
Semi Detached follows the story of Ellie (Parkinson) and the sitting tenants of a house she inherits. They are all single, divorced and separated, and have ended up living together despite having nothing in common.
The sitcom is written by Oriane Messina and Fay Rusling, who have also written Green Wing, Campus, and Me And Mrs Jones.
If the show gets commissioned for a full series, it’s set to feature as part of ITV’s prime time scheduling.
