Irish actor Robert Sheehan has landed a role on new BBC One sitcom ‘Me & Mrs Jones’. The ‘Love/Hate’ star will join Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly) and Sarah Alexander (Smack the Pony) in the Oriane Messina and Fay Rusling-penned comedy. The former ‘Green Wing’ writers will work alongside director Nick Hurran (Doctor Who), producer Serena Cullen (Push) and Beryl Vertue who will executive produce for Hartswood Films.
Hartswood have a long running history with BBC, having previously produced BBC One sitcom ‘Men Behaving Badly’ and drama series ‘Sherlock’.
The comedy is centred around single mother Mrs. Jones, played by Alexander, who is forced to juggle motherhood and her ex-husband, as well as her many young male admirers.
Production is set to begin 21 May on location at Teddington Studios. Sheehan is currently shooting season three of popular gangland drama ‘Love/Hate’ in Dublin, and will soon feature as a guest lead in the second series of BBC drama ‘Accused’, starring Anne-Marie Duff (Shameless) and John Bishop.
