Lee Mack, the British Comedy Award and BAFTA winning comedian, brings his multi award-winning primetime sitcom Not Going Out back to BBC ONE this April for a highly anticipated sixth series, following the unprecedented success of series five. Written by and starring LEE, the new series follows the hilarious mishaps and ridiculous exploits Lee encounters with long-suffering landlady and constant object of his affection - Lucy (SALLY BRETTON, The Office, Green Wing) and ditzy friend Daisy (KATY WIX, Torchwood, Outnumbered).
Highlights from the new series include; convincing Lucy to spend a weekend on Lee's dad's (BOBBY BALL) 'stylish' new boat even though she is terrified of water, finding himself a new girlfriend in a desperate attempt to make Lucy jealous, fighting for her attention when her first love reappears on the scene, and taking advantage of her new found counselling skills as a therapist. Other episodes include; Lucy accidentally running over her client's daughter's beloved pet rabbit, Lee and Lucy having to come up with appropriate entertainment for her nine year old god-daughter and her fourteen friends and Lee, Lucy and Daisy getting stuck in a cable car on an Eastern European skiing trip
LEE has established himself as one of the UK's most recognisable and celebrated comedy stars. A busy couple of years has seen him win a British Comedy Award for Best Male TV Comic, pen his own autobiography Mack the Life, return as resident team captain on the sixth series of Would I Lie To You? (BBC ONE) and have the honour of co-presenting the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert live from Buckingham Palace (BBC ONE), which peaked at 16.9 million viewers. In 2010, LEE toured the country with his twice extended national tour Going Out, playing over 100 dates and later recorded the DVD at one of his eight sold out shows at London's Hammersmith Apollo. LEE previously released his British Comedy Award nominated DVD Lee Mack Live based on his sell-out tour of the same name. A prolific writer and performer, LEE's TV and radio credits also include: starring in the first series of his own Saturday night primetime variety show, Lee Mack's All Star Cast (BBC ONE); guest hosting Have I Got News For You (BBC ONE); presenting his Sony Radio Award nominated The Lee Mack Show (BBC Radio 2); headlining and hosting Live at the Apollo (BBC ONE); and creating and starring in the BAFTA winning The Sketch Show (ITV1), which ran for two series in the UK before LEE went on to work alongside KELSEY GRAMMER in the American version of the show.
