Apple TV+ has released the trailer for their first UK comedy series Trying‘, starring Rafe Spall (‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’, ‘The War of the Worlds’), and Esther Smith (‘Cuckoo’, ‘Uncle’), which premieres 1st May on the streaming service.

All Nikki (Smith) and Jason (Spall) want is a baby – but it’s the one thing they just can’t have. How are they going to fill the next 50 years if they can’t start a family? They already went through The Sopranos in a weekend. After ruling out every other option, Nikki and Jason decide to adopt and are confronted by a world of bewildering new challenges. With their dysfunctional friends, screwball family, and chaotic lives, will the adoption panel agree that they’re ready to be parents?

Alongside Spall and Smith the series co-stars BAFTA Award winner Imelda Staunton (‘Harry Potter’, ‘Psychoville’), Ophelia Lovibond (‘Elementary’, ‘Feel Good’), and Oliver Chris (‘Motherland’, ‘Emma’). The series is written by Andy Wolton (‘The Coopers vs the Rest’), directed by Jim O’Hanlon (‘Catastrophe’), and comes from series from Apple TV+ and BBC Studios.
