David Morrissey, Aimee Lou Wood to star in BBC comedy ‘Daddy Issues’

Dec. 11 (UPI) —The Walking Dead alum David Morrissey and Sex Education actress Aimee Lou Wood have signed on to play father and daughter in the BBC’s new six-part comedy, Daddy Issues.

The show follows Gemma as she allows her divorced dad Malcolm to move into her apartment after finding out she is pregnant.

“She needs support at a critical time in a woman’s life. He needs help microwaving rice without it exploding,” a synopsis said.

Penned by screenwriter Danielle Ward, the half-hour show is now filming.

No premiere date has been announced yet.

“In Daddy Issues, Danielle has created a genuinely laugh-out-loud sitcom,” Jon Petrie, director of comedy commissioning at the BBC, said in a statement. “Having Aimee and David cast as the co-leads was the cherry on the cake.”
