'Uptight dentist Suzy Darling leaves her egotistical husband Steve and moves her children Elvis and Verity into a beautiful penthouse apartment to start a new life. She soon finds that the home is already occupied: by Henry, a strangely attired British man who has lost his memory. To make matters more mysterious, it soon becomes apparent that no one but Suzy can see him. Has the stress of her marriage breakdown caused Suzy to lose her mind? Or is there something more magical going on here?'

      'Spirited is a romantic look at life and love after death with a rock 'n' roll twist. From the producers of Love My Way, Spirited is a blackly funny exploration of love, death and life seen through the lives of a group of people who are extreme, complicated and unique. The eight episode, escapist and romantic drama series will take richly drawn characters through situations and storylines that are anything but predictable. This is a show with a lightness of touch and yet it also encompasses the absurdity of modern dentistry, explores the curious world of parenting, celebrates the punk aesthetic and depicts a unique vision of the spirit world' (Spirited website).
