Following weeks of anticipation, Channel 4 has released the first glimpse of Aisling Bea’s new comedy series.

This Way Up, which also stars Sharon Horgan, Aasif Mandvi, Tobias Menzies, Indira Varma and Sorcha Cusack, is set to air later this year.

The six-part show follows Aisling’s character Aine, as she tries to get her life back on track following a nervous breakdown, with the help of family, friends and colleagues.

Speaking of the series, Aisling has said, ”After years of scripts and projects that never made it to air, this show is a bit of a dream come true, so I really bloody hope you like it.

“Sharon and I first played sisters in a TV show that got cancelled about eight years ago and we have gone on many drunken nights out across the world together since to stay in character for this project.

“Channel 4 have supported and backed me in many ways for years now, so I am over the moon to have my little baby live with them and to have it go visit its step-mother Hulu in America too.”

We can’t wait to tune in!
