The dream house itself will also create drama, because it’s “weird and wonderful, and impractical, and one more disorientation for Alice, to go with her sense of loss and abandonment”.
She can’t even open the garage doors.
The six-part black comedy is co-created by Keeley with Roger Goldby and Simon Nye.
Speaking of the mini-series, Keeley said: “I am absolutely delighted to be working with the brilliant Simon Nye and the hugely talented Roger Goldby on a project that means so much to all of us.
