Trying Again, the new Sky sitcom starring Chris Addison.
Written by Addison and The Thick Of It's Simon Blackwell, the comedy series observes a couple struggling with life after an affair.
Starring alongside Addison will be Jo Joyner, who plays Tanya Branning in EastEnders. Joyner, who is set to leave the soap, has previously acted in comedy dramas including Candy Cabs and Swinging.
The cast list announced today also includes Downton Abbey's Charles Edwards and stand-up comic Alun Cochrane.
The eight episode comedy, which is being made for Sky Living, will focus on Meg (Jo Joyner) and Matt (Chris Addison), a couple who are going through a rough patch in their relationship. The creators describe the show as follows:
"Trying Again is a warm, funny sitcom about trying to mend a relationship after an affair. Set in The Lake District, Meg and Matt are meant to be together, they're pretty sure of that. And they really are trying to put her indiscretion with her boss Iain behind them. But it's not easy when you live in a small town where everyone knows everyone's business and you have bills to pay."
