Romesh Ranganathan and Katherine Ryan team up for Sky comedy drama
Romesh Ranganathan and Katherine Ryan are to star in new Sky Original comedy drama 'Romantic Getaway'.
The pair will team up for the modern six-part Bonnie and Clyde story, which will see couple Alison (Katherine) and Deacon (Romesh) resort to stealing because they are desperate to have a child but are unable to afford any more rounds of IVF.
'Romantic Getaway' begins directly after Deacon and Alison have defrauded their dodgy boss, Alfie (Johnny Vegas) of £500,000.
However, their illegal antics later draw them into the criminal underworld of Reading.
Romesh has written and created the series alongside Benjamin Green, with Sarah Morgan and Elaine Gracie providing additional writing.
While it's not yet known if his character's wrongdoing will be discovered, Romesh recently admitted he "got found out" when he tried to coast through his A-Levels.
He said: "Basically, I did quite well at GCSE without doing any work and then I used that policy for A-Level and got found out pretty badly.
"I got a C and two Ds, so when I was watching that, I'll be honest with you, I was really happy for the kids but also slightly hated them for doing better than me.
"I'm hoping my mum's not watching! She's just gonna phone me up and go, 'Why couldn't you be like them?!' "
Romesh admitted watching scenes of school kids getting their own results over the summer "brought it all back" for him.
He added: "I was watching some of the scenes there of people getting their results, and it just brought it all back. It's such a highly charged experience.
"The kids have got so much - they've pinned so many of their hopes on what those results are. I don't miss the nerves of that, to be honest with you."
