Outnumbered is a semi-improvised sitcom based around a couple and their three young children.

Pete and Sue, the parents, are 'outnumbered' by their three children. The comedy follows the daily chaos of their life as they are locked in an un-equal contest with their three kids.

The kids are Karen, a regal young girl with a talent for interrogation; Ben, a boy who could out-fib Jeffrey Archer; and intelligent but moody teenager Jake.

The series observes the well-meaning parental incompetence that happens in most homes, as a beleaguered mum and dad attempt to raise their kids with the minimum of emotional damage for all concerned.
