Emu, TV’s most troublesome bird, is back with a brand new live action comedy series airing Sunday mornings on ITV1.
In the first episode Emu and his friend Toby (son of Rod Hull, Emu’s past handler) are moving in to a new flat, but there’s a slight snag – no pets are allowed.
The pair soon meet sprightly neighbours Charlie and Dani and everything�s going swimmingly until ultra vigilant security guard Ken Cole pops in for a surprise visit and Toby decides that keeping Emu hidden is going to be impossible, they might as well confess and move out. But Will Charlie and Dani let their new friends leave that easily?
But eagle eyed security guards aren’t Emu’s only only problem – sneaky Sophie lives next door to our flightless hero and she’s forever thinking up ways to turn her feathered neighbour into crisp, folding cash for herself!
ITV promise “the strangest flat share in history” describing the show as “The Odd Couple meets Laurel & Hardy tarred and feathered!”
Toby and Emu have already appeared alongside one another in two high profile pantomimes and are set to return the bird to his glory days of the 1970’s when he entertained primetime audiences of over 11m.
