Step Dave - Scripted Format

Large Programme Image


Families come in all shapes and sizes...

Dave, a 24-year-old ordinary slacker, finds his life turned upside down when he meets the girl of his dreams – Cara - and her three kids.

Step-Dave is a light-hearted, feel-good family drama which demonstrates one of the realities of modern life – that families come in all different shapes and sizes.  In this series, home is where the heart is – even if that home is crammed full of kids, teenagers, ex-mother-in-laws and hangers-on.  

Can this unconventional relationship survive the age difference and the pressures of the multi-generational household? Can Dave step up (no pun intended) and be a proper parent?  Should he even try to? Can this unruly bunch live happily ever after as one big happy family?
