BBC Three Releases "First Look" Image Of Aimee Lou Wood & David Morrissey In 'Daddy Issues'

The BBC has released a “first look” image for BBC Three comedy Daddy Issues, along with revealing the additional cast who will join Aimee Lou Wood (‘Sex Education’) and David Morrissey (‘Walking Dead’, ‘Sherwood’, ‘The Missing’, ‘Britannia’) in the series.

When hedonistic 24-year-old Gemma (Lou Wood) discovers she’s pregnant after a random hook-up, she has no choice but to turn to her hapless father Malcolm (Morrissey) for support. Recently divorced from Gemma’s mother (who made off with their joint savings to ‘Eat Pray Love’ her way around the world), Malcolm is unable to load a washing machine, boil an egg or microwave rice without it exploding. Up until now, he’s been living in squalor with fellow divorcee Derek but when Gemma’s own flatmate decides to move out, the combination of financial desperation and a desire to not be totally alone makes her resort to the unthinkable: she asks her dad to move in with her. Because what’s the worst that could happen…?

From dating disasters and failed romances through to toxic friendships and messy family dynamics, plus a dangerously sociopathic antenatal teacher, Daddy Issues is an affectionate heart-warming story between father and daughter and the reality of facing up to parenthood – at any stage of life.

Joining the two leads on the series are David Fynn (Am I Being Unreasonable?), Sharon Rooney (Barbie), Sarah Hadland (Miranda), Taj Atwal (Hullraisers), Arian Nik (Count Abdulla), Tom Stourton (Stath Lets Flats), Susan Lynch (Sex Education), Susannah Fielding (This Time with Alan Partridge), Lauren O’Rourke (Henpocalypse), Cyril Nri (Death in Paradise), Cora Kirk (Grantchester), Perry Fitzgerald (Line of Duty), Claire Keelan (The Trip), Damien Molony (Brassic), Sherrie Hewson (Benidorm), Humphrey Ker (Welcome to Wrexham) and David Reed (Ghosts).

The six-episode series is a Fudge Park (The Inbetweeners, White Gold) production for BBC Three and BBC iPlayer, created and written by Danielle Ward (Brassic). It was commissioned by Jon Petrie, Director of Comedy Commissioning at the BBC and Fiona Campbell, Controller, Youth Audience, BBC iPlayer and BBC Three. The Directors are Catherine Morshead (The Full Monty) and Damon Beesley (White Gold, The Inbetweeners). The Producer is Lynn Roberts (Man Like Mobeen) and the Executive Producers are Phil Gilbert (White Gold) for Fudge Park Productions, alongside Aimee Lou Wood, David Morrissey, Danielle Ward and Damon Beesley. The commissioner for the BBC is Seb Barwell. Fremantle is handling global sales.

Daddy Issues‘ Season 1 does not yet have a premiere date but is coming to BBC Three and iPlayer in 2024. If you want to keep track of this or any other show, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
