Steve Coogan to star in new SKY1 family comedy drama "Starlings", filmed in Matlock, Derbyshire.

Steve Coogan is currently filming a new "family comedy drama" called Starlings in Matlock, Derbyshire.
This new series will start on SKY 1 on May 13th 2012.
The first series of Starlings is now released on DVD :

Baby Cow Productions’ founders Henry Normal and Steve Coogan will serve as Executive Producers, Baby Cow’s Alison MacPhail (The Mighty Boosh) will produce the series, while Matt King (Peep Show) and Steve Edge (Star Stories) will write and star.

Brendan Coyle and Lesley Sharp will play the mother and father of the Starling family, who have a crammed home following the return of their granddad.

The characters will include a 16-year-old football-crazy tomboy daughter, a reptile enthusiast son and beautiful daughter Bell, who gives birth in episode one.

Other characters invading the house will be Bell's ex-boyfriend Reuben, granddad's long-lost son Uncle Loz and nephew Fergie, who has just been made homeless by his long-suffering partner

Look out for this new show next year and you should recognise the filming locations.

Hopefully this will really help boost tourism in Matlock.
