BBC's Outnumbered Comes to U.S.

Outnumbered, the multi-award-winning comedy series captures the turbulent chaos of family life in a way not seen before – at its most deliciously chaotic moments.  Two parents, played by Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner, and their three children are locked in an unequal battle. Using elements of improvisation, Outnumbered sees the world as much from the children's as the adults' point of view. The parents constantly try to keep their children under control, but completely fail to do so.  Eleven-year-old Jake worries about everything from starting at his new school to the world being sucked into a black hole, seven-year-old Ben constantly lies to his parents and always wants to watch Little Britain, and five-year-old Karen seems to have a limitless number of questions.  Outnumbered premieres Saturday, July 30, 11:00pm ET/PT on BBC America.
