The Kumars

Written by Sanjeev Bhaskar alongside Bert Tyler Moore, George Jeffrie and Suk Pannu, Bhaskar resumes the role of Sanjeev Kumar alongside Meera Syal (Gran/Ummi), Vincent Ebrahim (Dad/Ashwin Kumar) and Indira Joshi (Mum/Madhuri Kumar).

Forced to down-size as a result of the economic downturn, The Kumars are now living in a flat in Hounslow (behind the gift shop that Dad, Ashwin, now runs). Host, Sanjeev, is divorced from his wife of nearly two years, Bindiya, but they share custody of their precocious 8 year old daughter. Mum, Madhuri, is intent on setting him up with a high profile celebrity and has a keen interest in online dating agencies.

Ashwin has secured a sponsorship deal which has enabled him to resurrect the family’s talk show, which takes place in the living room of their flat. Though only legally available in Punjab and the Hounslow area, cousin Moona knows of a way to hack into any satellite channel in the world.
