Premiere Trailer of Avoidance with Romesh Ranganathan

We've got our hands on the trailer for the upcoming comedy. Watch below.

What is this New TV Comedy About?

Meet the most dysfunctional family man ever. Starring Romesh Ranganathan, Avoidance tells the tale of a married man called Jonathan. He can be described as a conflict-avoidant beta male, who is so frustrating to live.

Because Jonathan is the way he is, all is not well in his married life. In fact, he and his partner Claire are splitting up!

Jonathan is desperate not to tell their son Spencer, so in a desperate attempt to keep the secret, he runs away with him to stay with his sister Danielle and her wife Courtney.

Now, we know what you're thinking. This doesn't sound like the storyline for a comedy. But, it’s funnier than it sounds. Romesh Ranganathan, who co-wrote the series, has said it's supposed to be funny with a bit of heart.

Who is in the Cast and Crew of Avoidance?

Lets meet the cast of the BBC's new comedy. Not only was Romash the co-writer, but he also is credited as co-creator.

Most would know Romash as a guest host of Have I Got News For You, but the comedian-actor is steadily adding to his portfolio. He's been busy away from the cameras, starting his own production company.

Jessica Knappet, who has recently starred in the BBC comedy Ghosts, plays the role of Claire. Her character is not afraid to say and show exactly how she feels.

Mandeep Dhillon plays the sister Dan. Her partner Courtney (played by Lisa McGrillis) is basically a teenager and Dan is the therapist mum. Mandeep is a rising star in the UK starring in After Life and Adult Material amongst other productions.
