When you’re in a perfect marriage (only sans sex) and running the perfect home with a nanny and a cleaner, a part-time job just seals the package.  Then across the road your university boyfriend of 20 years previously moves in with his perfectly perfect wife – Trouble!  This is a funny, acutely observed tale of modern manners reminiscent of early Wendy Holden.

Deja View Synopsis

Sydney and Charlie have the perfect marriage. They must have because everyone keeps telling them so. In fact, Sydney's whole life is sussed. Two adorable(ish) children, one adoring(ish) husband, one nanny, one cleaner, one lovely house. And latterly a glamorous job, albeit part time and quite possibly nepotistically come by. What's not to be ecstatic about? And then a new couple move in across the road: a very perfect, impeccable, tiny stranger with a Gwyneth Paltrow accent, and a man Sydney hasn't seen since she was 20. Sydney has never admitted to herself that Dylan broke her heart. But when she sees him again she begins to wonder...
