In space no one can hear you squabble. Saucer - a comedy about six people just trying to make it in the world... except they're not on the world.

For decades, sitcom characters have hung out in flats and houses and pubs where they would joke, laugh, argue, kiss, cry, bicker, get on each other's nerves and hug (lots of hugging).

What's the one thing all those places have in common? None of them were 35,786 kilometres above the Earth. But that is where the unlikely roommates in Saucer find themselves. Trapped aboard an abandoned UFO in orbit around the planet with no means of getting back down to Earth and no means of getting some personal space from their fellow abductees, the characters in Saucer are going where no sitcom characters have gone before.
