We have been treated to another shot of the main cast of Living the Dream thanks to Philip's co-star in the show, Lesley Sharp. The actress, who also appeared alongside Philip in Clocking Off shared the image on her official Instagram account saying
Sky One have revealed the first images of Philip in their new comedy drama, Living the Dream.
In an accompanying press release, Philip's character was confirmed as 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.
The show will also star Kim Fields (The Facts of Life) as their larger than life neighbour Rhoda, Kevin Nash (Magic Mike) as ex wrestler and park resident Troy, Leslie Jordan (Will & Grace) as busy-body, park resident Aiden, Paula Wilcox (Mount Pleasant) as Maureen and Jimmy Akingbola (Rev.) as Paul.
Philip has commented on his involvement in the project saying,
Really looking forward to making Living the Dream a reality! Along with a hugely talented cast and crew! Fire up my trailer park!
Lesley Sharp, who starred opposite Philip in Clocking Off, said,
This is an amazing opportunity to work on a warm and witty comedy drama with a great colleague Phil Glenister. It's wonderful to be working with him again.
There will be 6 episodes of the new series, which has recently begun filming in Saddleworth, Yorkshire and Savannah, USA. It is expected it will be available on Sky 1 and online streaming service NOWTV either later this year or early next year.
Last month, Philip revealed he was working on a new Sky TV comedy drama that was filming in America. Well, we can exclusively reveal that the title of this project is 'Living the Dream'.
The 6x60 minute show tells the story of a British family who sell up and move to the US to run a trailer park in Florida. It will also star Paula Wilcox (Man About the House, Emmerdale) and Lesley Sharp (Scott & Bailey, Clocking Off).
The cast and crew have been filming in Savannah, Georgia but were whisked home at the end of last week to film their departure scenes in a quiet cul-de-sac in Saddleworth.
'Living the Dream is produced by Big Talk productions - the company behind Cold Feet, Rev and Friday Night Dinner.

We've had several messages both on Twitter and through this site from confused fans asking us to explain the ending to Mad Dogs.
It's not been easy (we were as confused as you were on first viewing) but after a bit of thought and some (okay, rather a lot) of help from the internet, we think we've finally got it and will post it below for the benefit of our visitors.
Obviously this will contain spoilers so please don't press the button below unless you've seen the final ever episode. We cannot be held responsible if you spoil it for yourself.
All four of them were actually shot and died on the beach (and presumably buried in the pre dug graves).
The scenes that followed were of their souls leaving the beach (together, because that’s how they started this whole journey). Them driving off the road was symbolic to them driving off the road to hell, because of all the bad choices/mistakes they had made in their lives.
Baxter saw himself behind the Tiny Blair mask because the four of them were their own worst enemies and ultimately, it was their own actions and mistakes that lead to their deaths.
Other points to note:
We should also say that this theory has the Max Beesley seel of approval. It was tweeted by @Annabelle_BCFC and the Max retweeted it, adding the comment, 'BANG ON'.
So thanks to Annabelle (and the other members of the twitter-verse for helping us out. We sure needed it.
Does this help? What were your thoughts on the episode? Did you think the ending was fitting to the rest of the series. Let us know below.
And if you missed it, you can see both episodes again on Wednesday 1st January at 10pm and 11pm respectively on Sky 1 / HD.
