Up North.

Up North

Sheffield Live TV and Essex TV sitcom about two neighbours. 17 episodes (pilot + 3 series), 2016 - 2020. Stars Dean Sills, Kuljit Singh, Carley Motley, Bernie Clifton and others.


Two families are separated only by a fence ... The Smiths are poor, with head of the family Mick being unemployed. On the other side of the fence, well-to-do Bev Devi is trying hard to keep up appearances by throwing barbecues for her upper class friends, totally glossing over the fact that her marriage has long been in shambles.
