Kay Mellor delivers In the Club

Seasoned TV writer Kay Mellor (Band of Gold, Fat Friends, A Passionate Woman, The Syndicate etc) is working on a new 6-part drama for BBC One.

In the Club centres on six very different couples who meet at the local parentcraft class, and follows them as they go through the final stages of pregnancy. The drama examines love and relationships and the complications of growing families in the modern world.

The drama comes from Kay Mellor’s production company Rollem Productions and producer Yvonne Francas.

Creator Kay Mellor, who also executive produces, remarked: “Having given birth as a teenager I know how life changing it is. It’s a special time in your life, a time when you need people that understand what you’re going through and a close bond can be formed that can result in a lifelong friendship.

“I’m delighted to be writing for BBC One again. Both Ben Stephenson and Polly Hill instinctively understand my work. They encourage and trust me to deliver; as a dramatist you couldn’t ask for anything more and for that I’m eternally grateful.”

Exec producer for the BBC, Polly Hill, said: “I am thrilled to be bringing Kay's new drama series to BBC One I'm sure In the Club will be a real treat for our BBC One audience, when it airs next year.”
