"Engaging comedy drama" —The Birmingham Post (U.K.)
"Great fun" —The Times (U.K.)
It's business as usual when Mack Carter (Danny Webb, The Bill)—felonious breadwinner for a dysfunctional family of lowlifes—gets charged with robbery. But when Mack is sentenced to four years in jail, his wife, Lindsay (a deliciously brazen Amanda Redman, New Tricks), resolves to clean up her life. She's determined to drag her conniving children back to the straight and narrow as well. Going legit isn't so simple, though.
Lindsay finds herself dealing with impending poverty, thankless retail jobs, a pair of troublemaking sons, two cunning daughters, and a father-in-law who may be faking his Alzheimer's. On top of that, she struggles to fend off men from her past who hope to take advantage of her compromised position—including the detective (Sean Pertwee, Cold Feet) investigating one of her sons (Matthew McNulty, The Syndicate). Can the Carters go from corrupt to squeaky clean without coming apart at the seams?
