DESCRIPTION: (from BBC America's press release, June 2011) Every family has their quirks and the Goodmans prove that they are no exception in Friday Night Dinner, a new comedy, created by Robert Popper (South Park, Peep Show, Look Around You). Some things never change and for the Goodmans it's their weekly dinner, where the brothers act like kids again and Mom and Dad are as embarrassing as they always have been. From creepy neighbors to family meetings in the restroom, there is never a dull moment at the Goodman residence. It stars Tamsin Greig (Episodes), Simon Bird (The Inbetweeners), Paul Ritter (Pulling), Mark Heap (Spaced) and newcomer Tom Rosenthal. Friday Night Dinner premieres Saturday, July 30, 11:30pm ET/PT.
