Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forevermore.
The team behind the camera includes Mandie Fletcher (Blackadder, Absolutely Fabulous), directing from a script by Saunders, producers Jon Plowman (Absolutely Fabulous, The Vicar Of Dibley) and Damian Jones (The Iron Lady, Belle, Dad’s Army) with Steve Milne, Christian Eisenbeiss, Christine Langan, Nichola Martin, Saunders, Dawn French, and Maureen Vincent serving as executive producers. – Reuters/Leo Barraclough
