The World As We Know It

What if your ex was literally the last man on Earth? Meera Syal stars in this laugh-out-loud sitcom about surviving the apocalypse.

How would you start the first week of the rest of your life?

When housemates Donna, Johnny, Patrick and Abigail wake up on Saturday morning they are surprised to discover they are the last four people left of Earth. It might be the end of the world, but that won't stop them from enjoying themselves. In this witty comedy drama, follow the four friends as they try to keep calm and carry on doing what they usually do: go on holiday (but where, now they can go anywhere in the world?), host a film festival (can they agree on the artistic direction?) and play a murder mystery game (what could possibly go wrong?). Things become more complicated when strange noises are heard coming from the cellar. Are they really the only survivors? And what is the Doomsday device?

Also - Patrick and Abigail were engaged, but can the wedding go ahead now that the world has ended? More importantly, there is also the question of the future of the human race. Donna wouldn't sleep with Johnny (again) if he was the man of Earth, except now he almost is...

This hilarious six-part series, written by Luke Sorba and starring Meera Syal (Goodness Gracious Me, The Kumars At No. 42) and Simon Greenall (Alan Partridge), will have you laughing like there's no tomorrow!
