Synopsis When much loved children’s author Julian Hartswood (Ben Miller, Professor T, Bridgerton) inadvertently causes a social media storm, his career and that of his illustrator wife Ingrid appears to be over. That is until Austin (Micheal Theo, Love on the Spectrum), the neurodiverse son that Julian never knew existed, turns up out of the blue. Could embracing this modern nuclear family be Julian’s route back from cancellation? Will Ingrid (Sally Phillips, Pride and Prejudice, Zombies) forgive him for being such a pompous sh*t? One thing is for certain: if Julian thinks Austin is going to be a push over, he’s in for a rude awakening.
