Sunshine is a three-part drama co-written by Craig Cash and Phil Mealey, the team behind the BBC's hit comedy Early Doors, and co-writers of the BAFTA award-winning The Royle Family.
Starring Steve Coogan (I'm Alan ...展开Partridge, Saxondale), Bernard Hill (Lord Of The Rings) and Lisa Millett (Drop Dead Gorgeous, Blackpool), Sunshine is the bittersweet story of three generations of the Crosby family.
Bing has been fascinated with gambling since he was a child. Bernadette was his childhood sweetheart and, in spite of his addiction, they have become a couple.
The family is completed by their eight-year-old son, Joe, and Bing's father, George.
The relationship between grandson and grandad is a golden one – based on absolute trust and mutual affection.
But Bing's gambling spirals out of control, his losses reach unsustainable levels, and the only thing left to lose is his wife and son.
Sunshine has been directed by Craig Cash and produced by John Rushton and has been made for BBC One by Jellylegs Productions.
