BBC drama boss Ben Stephenson, unveiled the new five-part series at the Edinburgh TV Festival last weekend.
Love Life, also starring Jane Horrocks, David Morrissey and Ashley Walters, will focus on five affairs in one town, and will be the first BBC drama ever to contain a number of improvised scenes.
Stephenson said: “It features some of our very best acting talent working in a way we’ve never seen on screen from them before.”
The series, which has been written by BAFTA winner Dominic Savage, hits TV screens in the New Year.
... improvisation eh? As an actor, you either LOVE it, or HATE it!
