Dennis, who made his name on a string of comedy panel shows and sitcoms but is turning to more serious drama, will play nosey neighbour Alan Matterson, while Robbins, who starred as Penny Spencer-Wright in Ricky Gervais Netflix hit After Life, is his wife Jean. Unaware that Alan has taken to using a telescope to watch Becka for his own gratification, Jean is able to take delicious revenge on her peeping tom husband when he starts to take things to a new level.
The show will launch later this year on Channel 4 in the UK, Starz in North America and Lionsgate+ in Latin America. Filming took place earlier this year in Leeds and Belgium, and Beta Film is distrbuting.
Outlander‘s Heughan and Tomlinson are two of the bigger stars to have featured in Channel 4 projects of late. The network is also preparing to premiere Alice & Jack, the relationship drama starring Andrea Riseborough and Domnhall Gleeson, co-produced with PBS Masterpiece.
