The Sex and City has joined the cast of The Cockfields.
Kim Cattrall joins previously announced Joe Wilkinson and Diane Morgan in the forthcoming British comedy penned by Wilkinson with David Earl.
Sue Johnston, Bobby Ball, Nigel Havers co-star.
The comedy follows Simon (Wilkinson), who takes his girlfriend Donna (Morgan) back home for the very first time. According to Deadline, the two will spend a long weekend at the Isle of Wight as guests of Simon’s mother Sue (Johnston), and stepdad Ray (Ball). However, Simon’s father (Havers) and his new American girlfriend Melissa—enter Cattrall, will cause tensions to rise.
“David and I adore writing about this oddball family who, despite their faults and differences, love each other. We can’t wait to see our dream cast bring The Cockfields to life,” Wilkinson said.
Earl added: “We’re both chuffed and incredibly thankful to UKTV for giving us this opportunity to share The Cockfields with the Gold audience. On a personal note, I’ve had to endure many months staring at Joe Wilkinson’s face over Skype whilst writing the scripts — he usually has food in his beard — so, after all that, I bloody hope everyone likes the show.”
