Filming has begun on new BBC One comedy Grey Mates

Filming has now begun on Hat Trick Productions’ brand new BBC One comedy series Grey Mates. With an ensemble cast of veteran British actors including Russ Abbot, Stephanie Beacham, Philip Jackson, James Smith, Alison Steadman, June Whitfield and Paula Wilcox, Grey Mates centres itself around the lives of three senior couples in Thurnemouth, Norfolk.

Aiming to satirize what it means to be a retiree in the 21st century without falling into all the old cliche’s about old people, Grey Mates is a comedy that hopes to reignite people’s passion for being alive even when the world thinks your best years are behind you.
