Keeping up with the Sarkissians
27 September 2015 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Undercover is the first original comedy made by the channel Dave. Its produced by Baby Cow Productions (owned by Steve Coogan and Henry Normal as well as BBC Worldwide being a minority shareholder.) As Baby Cow tends to have a first look deal with the BBC and tend to make a lot of productions as well for Sky, I think its fair to assume that both broadcasters passed on this one.

BAFTA award winner Daniel Rigby plays Chris a neurotic and hapless undercover cop who has had to infiltrate an Armenian gangland family. Sarah Alexander plays his handler Zoe who also has to resist his charms.

Chris who only got the undercover role because of his Greek ethnicity is certainly all at sea with his dealings with the Sarkissians crime family as he seems clueless as to what is going on and there are some double crosses being plotted especially by Lara the femme fatale in the family.

The sit com is mildly amusing but no great shakes. The cast do well with a so-so script. It is nice that a repeat channel is trying out some original drama but I think that mainstream broadcasters do not feel they are being left out.
