Sitcom pilot telling the fictional story of a 30-year-old Woolworths assistant manager, Phil Mill, who was arrested by US Marines on suspicion of being a terrorist after venturing to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border on a birdwatching holiday.
The show catches up with Mill following his return home after a six-year-long campaign to free him led by his devoted girlfriend Carly.
Life in Britain is not quite as Phil remembers it - the credit crunch has claimed both his job and home. Plus he has several thousand answerphone messages to deal with!
