Man Down returns to Channel 4 in late summer for a fourth series.

In this new series walking disaster-area and child-trapped-in-a-man's-body Dan (Greg Davies) is locked in a soft-focus dream of his impending fatherhood; he's quit his much hated job as a teacher and is applying his unique work ethic to another, more earthy profession.

With Aunt Nesta (Stephanie Cole) and his mum (Gwyneth Powell) now in a retirement village "pissing my inheritance up a wall", Dan is on an increasingly desperate hunt find a new home for his soon-to-be family.

Helped by his oldest friends, uptight financial advisor Brian (Mike Wozniak) and the irrepressibly bonkers serial-'entrepreneur' Jo (Roisin Conaty), can Dan finally grow up to become the man he hopes he can be...? "Have you seen this show before?"
