The world’s most entertaining family are returning to their family home in the UK, pretty much as they left it all those years ago
Over twenty years ago, the Osbourne family left Britain for a life in the US and became the globe’s most iconic reality TV family - sharing their bizarre and hilarious life in the fly-on-the-wall show The Osbournes.
Now, the world’s most entertaining family are returning to their family home in the UK, pretty much as they left it all those years ago.
Expectation will produce 10x30' episodes, Home to Roost will document Ozzy and Sharon’s journey back to Britain, alongside Kelly and Jack’s efforts to support them, as they attempt to re-start their lives in rural Buckinghamshire.
The series will follow the Osbournes as they celebrate one of their most important years yet – with everything from Sharon’s 70th birthday to Kelly’s soon-to-be-born baby, Ozzy’s tour, and of course the big move itself.
This will be a genuine portrait, showing Sharon and Ozzy as they face up to illness and the challenges of getting older, but with the usual Osbourne eccentricities, humour, warmth and love.
Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries, says: “I’m delighted that the Osbournes will be sharing this next chapter in their lives with BBC viewers in what promises to be a funny, moving and honest insight into their new life in the UK.”
The series is a collaboration between Expectation’s Factual and Entertainment teams. Ben Wicks and Colin Barr, Creative Directors, Expectation say: “Rejoining the Osbournes as they return to the UK is a once in a lifetime opportunity...
"Twenty years ago, they shaped television for all of us - now they’re coming home at a different stage in their lives but with the promise of the same laughter, love and tears. We can’t wait to work with them and to share it with BBC One viewers in 2023.”
Home to Roost (10x 30) for BBC One and iPlayer was commissioned by Clare Sillery, Head of Commissioning, Documentaries.
