CASUALTY actress and current Strictly Come Dancing celebrity Sunetra Sarker is set to appear in a new six-part BBC Four comedy written by and starring Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine, co-creators of the BAFTA-nominated Getting On, ‘Puppy Love’ is a story of love, dogs and the love of dogs.
A warm and energetic character-based comedy about owners’ problems with their dogs and dogs’ problems with their owners, Puppy Love is set around a dog training class on the Wirral, ‘For All Your Dogging Needs’. The indubitable Nana V (Joanna Scanlan) runs it, and West Kirby altruist Naomi Singh (Vicki Pepperdine) starts attending the puppy classes. The series charts the relationship between two very different women as they navigate their headstrong dogs, impossible teenage kids and preoccupied husbands.
Sunetra is set make a guest appearance as Lilli Kusiak in Episode 4 of the new comedy drama, which is due to air in November 2014.
