Ghosts

Credits: lead actor / writer / creator / executive producer

Ghosts is a major new sitcom for BBC1, created, written by and starring Larry and his cohorts from Yonderland and Horrible Histories. The series centres around Alison and Mike – a young couple struggling to get on the urban property ladder – whose prayers appear answered when a distant relative bequeaths them a sprawling country estate. The catch? The old house is both falling apart and teeming with the ghosts of its former inhabitants.

Larry stars as two of these troublesome spirits - Robin, a wise but unpredictable caveman, and Humphrey, a decapitated Tudor locked in an endless battle to be reunited with his own body.

The show also stars Katy Wix (Not Going Out, The Windsors) and Lolly Adefope (This Time with Alan Partridge, Damned), with Charlotte Richie (Fresh Meat, Call The Midwife) as Alison, and Kiell Smith-Bynoe (Stath Lets Flats, Enterprice) as Mike.

Ghosts is produced by Monumental Pictures in association with Them There - a new production collective compromising the six-strong team who conceived the show and executive produce.

The series continues Mondays at 9:30pm on BBC1.
