Sitcom Things You Should Have Done is heading to BBC Three, and here’s the trailer for the new show.

Sadly, new comedy on television is becoming rarer and rarer, as budgets tighten and production companies become ever more risk averse. Currently, Mrs Brown’s Boys and Not Going Out stand as the only two studio audience sitcoms still on the air, and even then, Not Going Out has not yet officially been recommissioned.

BBC Three has long been a champion of new comedy, from Sean Lock’s wonderful 15 Storeys High to Gavin And Stacey, Him & Her and Back To Life.

Now, it is home to new sitcom Things You Should Have Done. According to the BBC Media Centre, the synopsis reads as follows:

Self-confessed stay-at-home-daughter, Chi (Lucia Keskin), is suddenly forced to fend for herself when her parents die. Chi will inherit the house on condition she completes a list of ‘Things You Should Have Done’ left by her parents (everything from ‘Pet a dog’ to ‘Get a job’). Meanwhile Chi’s highly strung Auntie Karen (Selin Hizli) wants nothing to do with her dependent pest of a niece, but very much wants the house she feels is rightfully hers! In each episode, Chi tackles something from the list and is unleashed on the locals of Ramsgate, who bring something new to Chi’s understanding of life but leave wishing they’d never met her.

Jamie Bisping and Dan Fearne complete the cast. Created and written by Keskin, she said of the show that “it’s a mental show about a girl who has to try and cope with life now her parents are dead and can’t do everything for her, she desperately leans on the family she has left and sort of forces her way into people’s lives”.

Jack Clough directed the series.

Things You Should Have Done airs on BBC Three on 29th February and all episodes will be available to watch on iPlayer the same day.
