Apple TV+ reveal trailer and announce release date for new comedy show, Trying

Apple TV+ have today launched the trailer and new images for their first ever UK comedy series, Trying, which will have its premiere on Friday May 1st.

Trying is about a thirty-something couple and their friends learning to grow up, settle down and find somebody to love. It’s written by Andy Wolton and directed by Jim OHanlon (Catastrophe, The Punisher and A Touch of Cloth).

All Nikki (Esther Smith) and Jason (Rafe Spall) want is a baby – but it’s the one thing they just can’t have. How are they going to fill the next 50 years if they can’t start a family? After ruling out every other option, Nikki and Jason decide to adopt and are confronted by a world of bewildering new challenges. With their dysfunctional friends, screwball family and chaotic lives, will the adoption panel agree that they’re ready to be parents?

Starting BAFTA Nominee Esther Smith, SAG Nominee Rafe Spall, alongside BAFTA Award winner Imelda Staunton, Ophelia Lovibond and Oliver Chris, Trying is produced by BBC Studios.
