WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A family comedy about singing up and standing out. The show tells the story of Spencer and Kit Parkin, who have grown up surrounded by the legendary success of granddad Gerry, a session singer with BBC Radio 2's Cliff Adams Singers. Spencer's mum belts out 80's power ballads, his best friend Bonnie is a karaoke queen and his brother Kit is heading for pop stardom. Spencer, the first Parkin in the history of Parkins unable to sing a note, is not. But he's not going to let that stop him. When Kit jacks it all in and joins the army and Spencer is left looking after their distraught mother, he decides to make things better the only way he knows how, by entering a singing competition! Before he knows it, he's standing at the Royal Albert Hall, clinging onto the inspiration of his late granddad Gerry Parkin, backing singer extraordinaire. This could be Spencer's time to shine - couldn't it?
