"Finely balanced black comedy" --The Guardian (U.K.)
"Scathing and uproariously funny" --Evening Times (U.K.)
After ten years as a marketing executive for Groomtech Industries, Reggie Perrin is dangerously alienated and frustrated. His boss doesn’t understand him, and his wife pays too little attention to notice. Reggie is left to find his own distractions wherever he can--on his daily commute, in the office, or at home in the suburbs. More often than not, his flights of fancy land him in hot water. But somehow Reggie always manages to extricate himself before disaster hits, preserving the respectable veneer of a successful city businessman . . . for the moment, at least.
This update of the classic British comedy was cowritten by the original series creator, David Nobbs (The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin), and Simon Nye, the write behind Men Behaving Badly. Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) stars as the often bewildered, sometimes infuriating, but always fascinating Reggie Perrin. Fay Ripley (Cold Feet) costars as Nicola, his long-suffering wife. Includes the complete Series 1 and 2.
