Romesh Ranganathan co-creates and stars in new BBC comedy series Avoidance

OHMYGOSSIP — Romesh Ranganathan is to star in a new comedy series about a man with severe conflict avoidance issues.
The ‘Weakest Link’ host has written and created the new BBC show, ‘Avoidance’ – which has been five years in the making – alongside Benjamin Green, who also directs the series.
Romesh said: “Ben and I first conceived this idea in 2017 and have been thinking about it on and off ever since, so if it disappeared after one series it would be really annoying.
“If I say the BBC have committed to three series in this quote, do they have to honour that?”
The new, six-part comedy series will see Romesh play Jonathan, whose life revolves around his nine-year-old son Spencer, and he’s always deferred the big and small decisions to his partner Claire (Jessica Knappett).
However, his life is turned upside down when Claire asks him to leave so he takes his son and runs, only to get as far as staying with his sister Danielle (Mandeep Dhillon) and her wife Courtney (Lisa McGrillis).
Benjamin Green added: “It was not exactly a tough ask for Romesh and myself to imagine what life would be like for a useless, conflict averse, procrastinating Beta male.
“It was trickier to work out what would happen if he was actually forced to change.
“We are delighted the BBC have allowed us to make a show for all those people that cannot turn an invitation down or tell a waiter they have the wrong order and especially for those poor souls that have to live with them.”
Tanya Qureshi, Commissioning Editor of Comedy for the BBC, added: “Romesh, Ben and the Ranga Bee team have assembled a fantastic cast to bring their modern take on a family sitcom to life.
“We couldn’t be more excited to share it with audiences on BBC One later this year.”
