Trying Again is an original British comedy co-created by Emmy® and Oscar award nominated writer SIMON BLACKWELL (Veep, In the Loop) and actor and comedian CHRIS ADDISON (The Thick of It).

Set in the Lake District, Meg (JO JOYNER) and Matt (CHRIS ADDISON) are soul mates trying to get their relationship back on track after their happily ever after was disrupted by an affair. But it’s not easy when you live in a small town, where everyone knows everyone’s business, and the past is breathing down your neck.

Trying Again is a romantic comedy of errors about love, loss, friendship and nearly flinging it all away. Awkward moments between a brilliantly talented cast make the show truthful, painful, and full of very funny stuff.

“It’s a rom-com with edge”
The Independent

“The supporting cast was excellent and the script fizzed with wordplay and pop culture references… Warm, witty, winningly old-fashioned and flat-out funny. I’ll be trying Trying Again again.”
The Telegraph

“A delight”
The Times
