The trailer for Idris Elba’s highly anticipated comedy series, “In The Long Run” has been released by British television network, Sky. Based loosely on Idris Elba’s father and family, it stars the actor, along with Bill Bailey, Kellie Shirley, Jimmy Akingbola and Mattie Boys as the main cast while Declan Lowney and Cecile Emeke direct the sitcom.

“In The Long Run” follows the Easmon family’s life as migrants from Sierra Leone living in London in the 1980s. Walter Easmon (played by Idris Elba), and his wife, Evelyn Easmon have managed to attain a level of success by keeping a strict routine for themselves and their son. Their routine is threatened when Walter’s less serious brother moves to the UK. And though he frustrates Walter and Evelyn, their son Akuna takes very well to the new breath of fresh air in the family.

Idris Elba who created the show, recently said that playing his late father is a form of therapy for him. Apart from acting, he executive produces, along with Gina Carter. “In The Long Run” premieres on Thursday, March 29 at 8pm on Sky One
