Rick Bacon shoots ‘I Want My Wife Back’ for BBC One

Date - 16 October, 2015, All News Comedy Television

Rick Bacon begins shooting the role of Jerry in new BBC One comedy series I Want My Wife Back alongside a stellar cast.

This new romantic-comedy drama tells the story of Murray (Ben Miller) whose wife walks out on their marriage on her 40th birthday. The series follows his attempts to find out why she has left him and how he can win her back… though it’s less a journey than a floundering stumble in the dark towards the prize of returning his life to something approaching normality. Friends, family and colleagues are only too ready to offer advice to Murray about what he should do, and each week sees him adopt a new strategy to achieve his goal.

Written and produced by Mark Bussell and Justin Sbresni (The Worst Week Of My Life), I Want My Wife Back (6×30) is a co-production between Mainstreet Pictures and Busby Productions. The director is Paul Norton Walker (Boy Meets Girl) and the executive producers are Sally Haynes and Laura Mackie. BBC commissioning editor is Chris Sussman.
