What is King Gary about?
King Gary is pegged as a “larger than life working-class sitcom with a big heart”.
It follows childhood sweethearts Gary and Terri King, a husband and wife comedy double act, as they aspire to be socially accepted – and at least a bit successful – in suburbia, where the competition is rife.
Gary is a total drama queen and his constant need to impress his old school dad, Big Gary, means he pretty much always acts like a “try-hard douchebag”.
Who made King Gary and who is in the cast?
King Gary is made by the creative team behind the Bafta-winning show Murder in Successville. It is written by Tom Davis and James De Frond, who also directs.
Davis stars as Gary and is joined in the cast by Simon Day (The Fast Show) as Big Gary, Camille Coduri (Him & Her) as Denise King, Laura Checkley (Wanderlust) as Terri King and comedian Romesh Ranganathan as Stuart.
