The Labours Of Erica
Created by Andrew Norriss & co-written with Richard Fegen.
“This was the third sitcom that Richard and I worked on together – and was custom written for the brilliant Brenda Blethyn. The idea was that, as a middle aged woman, she finds a diary from her girlhood with a list of twelve things she vowed to do before she was 40. She hasn’t done any of them, and there’s only three months to go, so she ups and starts doing…
It was a nice idea, and Brenda was fabulous but somehow we never sorted out a real direction for the characters. So she did the twelve things (in twelve episodes) and that was that. Shame, really, but there were some good laughs on the way.” Andrew Norriss
