We know Andy Samberg from Hollywood and Saturday Night Live and now he’s starring in a BBC3 Comedy, Cuckoo with Greg Davies from The Inbetweeners and Helen Baxendale from Cold Feet. Look out for this next Tuesday september 25th, on BBC3.
Cuckoo, played by Samberg, is every parent’s worst nightmare, a drop out with New Age ideas. Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna’s (Helen Baxendale) only daughter, Rachel (Tamla Kari) has brought him home from her gap year and introduced as her new husband.
Ken and Lorna have no choice but to welcome him into their family home – and if every Englishman’s home is his castle, then this hippie has stormed Ken’s fortress and plundered everything and most unforgivably, his princess.
Set in the Midlands – home to the Thomas family – Ken and Lorna are horrified by their daughter’s news but as he settles into the family home, they are surprised just how much they warm to their new squared-jawed, self-appointed spiritual ninja son-in-law.
Cuckoo was created and written by Robin French and Kieron Quirke (Trinity).
Also starring in Cuckoo are Tamla Kari (The Inbetweeners Movie) as Rachel, Tyger Drew Honey (Outnumbered) as Rachel’s younger brother Dylan. Selina Griffiths (Being Human, Benidorm) and Ken Collard (Anna Karenina, Skins) star as Ken and Lorna’s best friends, Connie and Steve.
