Sky Atlantic has commissioned a new six-part comedy series, Robin’s Test – written and directed by BAFTA award winner Julia Davis (Nighty Night, Hunderby).

Robin’s Test is a comedy about a group of couples on a birthday camping trip to Dorset.

The carefully planned weekend quickly unravels once party girl Fay (Davis) arrives with the newly separated Tom (Rufus Jones) and the holiday takes on a whole new direction.

The series also stars, Vicki Pepperdine (Together), Steve Pemberton (Inside No.9), Jonathan Cake (Doll & Em), Liz Berrington (Stella) all under the curiously watchful eye of campsite owner – David Bamber (Rome).

Julia Davis commented: “I am very, very excited to be making another series for Sky Atlantic thanks to the great creative freedom and support of Zai Bennett and Lucy Lumsden.

Director of Sky Atlantic Zai Bennett commented: “Known for grown-up storytelling and working with the best in the industry, Sky Atlantic is the perfect home for Julia Davis’s sublime work.”

Robin’s Test is a Baby Cow Production and is produced by Ted Dowd (Moone Boy, Gavin and Stacey).
