All Jason and Nikki want is a baby. But it's the one thing they just can't have.

How are they going to fill the next 50 years if they can't start a family? After ruling out every other option, call centre worker Nikki and English-as-a-foreign-language teacher Jason decide to adopt and are confronted by a world of bewildering new challenges. With their dysfunctional friends, screwball family, and chaotic lives, will the adoption panel agree that they're ready to be parents?

Starring Rafe Spall and Esther Smith, Trying is a comedy series about growing up, settling down and finding someone to love.
