Gates is an ensemble comedy headed by Sue Johnston (The Royle Family), Tom Ellis (Miranda) and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey) set in the all too familiar chaos of the school gates.

Mark and Helen are parents who've recently moved to the South East where their nine-year-old daughter is starting at a new primary school. And they're about to discover what happens when your children choose your friends.

Sky says: "Essentially a character comedy, but with a nod to those sketch-like moments of madness which can only ever happen in the playground, Gates casts an eye on how relationships with parents formed during fifteen minutes of a school drop off and pick up can so easily take over your life.  The school gates can be an unforgiving, socially exposed political minefield."
