Philip attend MIPCOM this year (the worlds leading market for entertainment) and he sat down with their blog team to answer a few questions about upcoming Sky One comedy-drama, 'Living the Dream'
Could you tell us more about Living the Dream?
The programme is about a family which ups sticks to America and buys an RV trailer park. It is a warm and engaging family show, the characters on site are lots of fun. Mal Pemberton, my character, hadn’t seen the park he has bought, so it’s a bit of a surprise! There are a lot of series with couples fighting, but this one is happily married, and makes a good team! My wife, Jen, is much more practical, while my character is more of a dreamer and runs headlong into a lot of situations.
Are you personally tempted by upping sticks like the Pembertons do?
No, I’m a little too set in my ways… One day maybe, but there are a lot of complications with visas. There’s a risk to it, but that’s what, I think, attracted our producer, as there are lots of Brits who emigrate to the US.
Does Living the Dream follow the rather British trend of cringe humour, à la The Office?
No, I hope you’ll be laughing with us, rather than at us! In episode two, we’re taken to church by my daughter, who’s fallen for the son of the local mayor, who’s very religious. So she pretends we are too, and we end up in a rather flamboyant ceremony. Afterwards, I have to get them to sing (traditional British hymn) All Things Bright and Beautiful. I won’t tell you how that goes down!
You’re a big fan of cars, as your For The Love of Cars show made clear. Did you get to play with any here?
When (producers) Luke and Mick were scouting for locations, they were given a Lincoln Navigator 4×4, a big old bastard. They liked it so much that it became our family car! Then Jen, my character’s wife gets a convertible Mustang; a real beauty!
What do you think of the export potential of the show?
The programme should cross over quite readily as it’s something lots of people have thought of doing themselves: this might put them off completely… or the opposite! Maybe Trump will buy it!
Cinemax and HBO have finally confirmed that the second season of Outcast, which aired internationally in April, will hit screens in the US in July 2018.
It's been a long time but Cinemax will support the airing by re-broadcasting the first season on Cinemax and adding it to HBO Go and HBO Now, so new fans can discover it before the second season starts.
As for the fate of the show? According to Deadline, “the options on the cast have long lapsed.” But, never say never. Kary Ahtolis, president of HBO Miniseries and Cinemax Programming has spoken with Skybound CEO David Alpert on the matter and said,
We’re trying to give it its best platform. Ramping up our new slate of shows, and all the promotion that’s going into it, hopefully, will give it a runway. I think the new season is very strong, and I hope it’s got a bit more fun and entertainment in it, and is a step forward. In success, we left open the possibility that we could have a conversation about figuring out a way to bring it back
OUTCAST (July) continues the suspenseful mystery of what lies behind Rome’s supernatural manifestations in the second season of the Skybound/Image comic title by Robert Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta. Patrick Fugit (“Gone Girl,” HBO’s “Cinema Verité”) stars as Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Now, with the help of Reverend Anderson, played by Philip Glenister (“Kingdom of Heaven”), a preacher who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil, Kyle struggles to protect those he holds most dear, now that otherworldly threats prove greater than anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of his hometown of Rome, as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.
Sky have begun trailing Living the Dream on their channels. We are able to bring you a glimpse of that trailer, thanks to one of our fellow Phil-fans and the wonders of technology (by which we mean a mobile phone camera!)
Hopefully, we will be able to bring you an official HD trailer soon, but for now enjoy this glimpse at what looks like to be a great show!
Sky 1 have confirmed that Philip's new show, Living the Dream will air on Thursday 2nd November at 9pm on Sky 1.
The comedy-drama tells the story of Mal Pemberton who, along with his wife, Jen (Lesley Sharp and children Tina (Rosie Day) and Freddie (Brenock O'Connor), decides it’s time to leave rainy England and move to the sunshine state of Florida.
Mal’s buys an RV Park with plans for a booming family-run business, but it soon turns out that they are not going to be living the dream they hoped. Before they’ve even settled in, Mal discovers that the park is home to a group of eccentric residents who are not exactly thrilled to meet their new owners. Jen has to learn how to survive American suburbia and the kids have to navigate a US high school.
With culture clashes aplenty, life in Britain soon seems even further away than they’d thought it would. But with the support of each other and their crazy new friends, they begin to learn how to live the American dream.
