Parental Guidance is set around the lives of Roshan and Kate Parera. They live in Crawley, Sussex, with their two children, Emma and Lewis. Roshan is a cost-benefits analyst for the airline industry, Kate is stay-at-home mum.

Roshan's overbearing mother, Anusha, lives nearby and is still disappointed that Roshan picked Kate and not a nice Sri Lankan girl to marry. Roshan's neighbour and friend Neil is an air steward and often gives Roshan sanctuary in his shed whenever he needs a safe space.

This pilot episode sees Kate and Roshan going to their school reunion where Kate is keen to show off her happy family life, and Roshan is not keen to meet Steve Johnson, the bully who terrorised him during his schooldays...
