Jack & Millie

“Jack & Millie” is the brainchild of Jeremy Front who, with his sister Rebecca Front had been improvising these two characters for years - and now they’ve been brought to life in a new show...

... a phone, a strudel & Franz Kafka combine to make Jack & Millie’s day rather complicated in this new comedy about an older couple getting to grips with a French daughter-in-law, gassy beer, Eye-Closing Leon and a married lifetime’s-worth of verbal sparring...

So Millie’s son Melvin has given her a new tablet with a voice recorder?

So suddenly Jack & Millie have decided to record everything that happens to them? And for this, we should be grateful?

- well YES! - because this is a new comedy show written by Jeremy Front (writer of the Charles Paris mysteries for Radio 4) and starring Jeremy Front and Rebecca Front as Jack & Millie Lemman - an older couple who are fully engaged with contemporary life whilst being at war with the absurdities of the modern world...

The show also features Millie’s frenemy Shirley - played by Tracy-Ann Oberman, Jack’s all-too-easygoing friend Harry (Andy Nyman), their high-pressure son Melvin (Harry Peacock) and their high-maintenance (and Catholic) (and French) daughter-in-law Delphine (Jenny Bede - most recently heard in the sixth episode of “Double Acts” alongside Mathew Baynton).

Once the pilot went out 9to great critical acclaim) the series commission followed, and in July 2018, it aired for the first time. In it, we get to explore Melvin's barbecue skills, Harry's unexpected knowldge of Leviticus, Delphine's unexpected passion for Pierce Brosnan and Shirley's leather-clad hybrid... Not to mention Jack and Millie themselves kvetching and arguing all the way.
