Watch the trailer…

Leo’s had a bad day. He’s been fired (again), is being given a hard time by his mum and, to cap it all, his blind date fails to show up. But then he bumps into Judy and finds himself deeply attracted to this surprising and beguiling woman.

They bond over drinks and, unfazed by the fact that there’s a bit of an age gap between them, arrange to meet the following evening. Leo’s mother is unhappy that he’s having dinner with an older woman. But Leo doesn’t care what she thinks; he knows that he’s just met someone very special.

Commissioned following a screening of the pilot at the BBC Salford Sitcom Showcase last year, Boy Meets Girl is written by Elliott Kerrigan and Simon Carlyle.
