Scarborough is a brand new comedy series from Derren Litten, the creator and writer of the award-winning sitcom Benidorm. It follows the lives and loves of a small handful of residents in Scarborough, the sometime sunny beach resort in North Yorkshire, who meet most nights in the local karaoke bar where they swap gossip and sing 80’s classics.

Made by BBC Studios, the 6x30' comedy series will feature an ensemble cast which will be announced in due course and filming is set to take place on location in summer 2019.
