Avoidance trailer

Romesh Ranganathan’s new BBC comedy

Here’s the first trailer for Romesh Ranganathan’s new BBC comedy Avoidance.

The show is described as ‘a warm and bittersweet comedy series about a man with severe conflict avoidance issues who is forced to change for the sake of his son’.

Ranganathan created the show with Benjamin Green, his partner in the production company Ranga Bee who will also direct the series. He said: ’It was not exactly a tough ask for Romesh and myself to imagine what life would be like for a useless, conflict averse, procrastinating beta male. It was trickier to work out what would happen if he was actually forced to change.’

Avoidance - which also stars Jessica Knappett, Mandeep Dhillon and Lisa McGrillis – will air on BBC One from 9.30pm on June 10.
