Gates is an ensemble comedy set amidst 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."
