About the Show

Never Better is a British television sitcom created by Fintan Ryan and produced by World Productions about Keith Merchant, a recovering alcoholic in his mid-thirties whose life never seems to get better, and his long-suffering wife Anita.

The series premiered in the UK on BBC Two on 10 January, 2008. There are six half-hour episodes in the first season.

Never Better premiered in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment channel on Monday 23 March 2009, at 20h00.

Synopsis

Never Better is a comedy series about one man's struggle to cope with it all. An Alcoholics Anonymous attendee with a bad attitude, Keith (Stephen Mangan) is the wrong person trying to do the right thing.

He’s a recovering alcoholic, but he doesn’t realise that alcohol is the least of his problems. While he manages to stay on the wagon, his sobriety means crisis and destruction for everyone else.

At his AA group, he creates chaos endangering the recovery of his fellow twelve-steppers. At home, his wife and two children have to cope with Keith’s new attentiveness and misfiring determination to be a good dad and husband.

From moments of gloriously uncomfortable, quintessentially British humour to hilarious, laugh-out-loud catastrophes, Never Better is about a recovery that never progresses, and family time that never fails to go wrong.
