Outnumbered is a British sitcom starring Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner as a father and mother outnumbered by their three children (played by Tyger Drew-Honey, Daniel Roche and Ramona Marquez). There were five series, which aired on BBC One in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2014. Produced by Hat Trick Productions, Outnumbered was written, directed and produced by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, although parts of the show are semi-improvised. The adult actors learn the scripts, while the children are given last-minute instructions by the writers instead. The programme has received critical acclaim for its semi-improvisational scripting and realistic portrayal of children and family life. Ratings have been average for its time slot, but the series has won a number of awards from the Comedy.co.uk awards, the Royal Television Society, the British Comedy Awards and the Broadcasting Press Guild. The first four series and the two Christmas Specials have been released on DVD. An American adaptation is currently being planned. The series began airing in the US on BBC America on 30 July 2011, as well as airing on PBS stations. Outnumbered is centred on the Brockmans, a middle-class family living in West London, whose two parents are "outnumbered" by their three, somewhat unruly, children. The father, aged 50, Pete (Hugh Dennis), is a history teacher at an inner city school and the mother, aged 45, Sue (Claire Skinner), is a part-time personal assistant. The three children are: Jake (Tyger Drew-Honey), aged 17, the straight man of the family, whose teenage sarcasm and obsession with girls worries his mother, Ben (Daniel Roche) aged 13, who is hyperactive, a pathological liar, does unusual things, and is always coming up with hypothetical questions like "who would win in a fight between...", and Karen (Ramona Marquez), aged 11, who asks too many questions, frequently imitates a lot of what she sees on television and criticises nearly everything.
