"Breeze Block" lined up for BBC Choice
The six-part series, set in Newcastle, follows the lives and hopes of a working-class Geordie family who live in a downtrodden council estate.
Tim Healy stars as Ralph Breeze
Auf Wiedersehen Pet's Tim Healy takes the lead role of Ralph Breeze, whose days are now spent dealing with his family, having been fired from the local tank factory. Su Elliott plays his wife Iris, who aspires to work in a supermarket but can't quite figure out how to work the till, and David Nellist is their lazy son Eric, a windowcleaner who is always getting involved in trouble. Gobby daughter Carol Breeze is played by Badger's Alison Mac, whilst Craig Heaney is the other son, sweethearted Billy, who has taken a job of a jigolo.
Guest appearances on the show include Donna Air and Ross Noble, who play their fruitcake neighbours Kiki and Trevor, along with Jayne Middlemiss and Denise Welch, who have cameo roles.
Breeze Block premieres March 4 at 22.30 on BBC Choice.
