Hebburn is a warm family sitcom created by Geordie stand up Jason Cook and co-written with Graham Duff.

Impetuous and ambitious Jack (Chris Ramsey) has left Tyneside for the bright lights and glamour of Manchester having secretly married a middle class Jewish girl, Sarah.  Now it’s about time he introduced her to his family in Hebburn.

 

 

Jim Moir (aka Vic Reeves) and Gina McKee play Jack’s parents, Joe and Pauline, who are devoted to their family and their hometown.  There’s fun-loving sister Vicki; Grandmother, Dot, who likes to keep everyone ‘up to speed’ on her bowel movements;  Vicki’s boyfriend Gervaise and her best friend, Denise and Jack’s old mates Ramsey (played by Cook) and Big Keith.

Jan Ravens and Phil Nice guest star as Sarah’s parents, Susan and Ben, who have to contend with their daughter marrying into a family from a very different background.
