I Want My Wife Back gears up to shoot
Death in Paradise star Ben Miller is set to star as a distressed spouse in new BBC comedy I Want My Wife Back.
Produced by Busby Productions and Mainstreet Pictures, the show follows Murray (Miller) as he tries to get his personal/work life on track after his wife decides to up and leave on her 40th birthday. The show then looks at how he comes to terms with what has happened and his attempts to get his wife back.
Writers Mark Bussell and Justin Sbresni (The Worst Week of My Life) said of the new project: "We've hugely enjoyed developing this project with Mainstreet and the BBC and are looking forward to consciously recoupling with Ben Miller."
On Production Intelligence we have much more information on the show including the names of the executive producers and production manager plus the shoot dates.
Mainstreet Pictures have also just wrapped upcoming ITV drama Unforgotten, starring Nicola Walker and Sanjeev Bhaskar, which filmed in central London, Essex and East Anglia over three months earlier this year. Specifics are available for both projects on Production Intelligence.
