Brand new Bajan SITCOM starts next week

| May 9, 2013


After months of planning and preparation, the first Caribbean TV series for many years (and the first ever series from Barbados) comes to the UK.


“Keeping Up With The Joneses” (KUWTJ) will be broadcast on Sky-209 and Virgin-828 from Monday 13 May at 2:30pm with a new episode each weekday (2:30pm and 11pm) until 31 May.

This brand new sitcom series stars the Joneses, a family who reluctantly becomes the subjects of reality show entitled Life & Times in the Caribbean.  It requires that a camera crew follow the family around and films their every move.

Irving (the patriarch of the family) signs the contract to do the show against Angela’s (his wife) wishes. Now, Irving, Angela, Tracy (their 17-year-old daughter) and Nathan (their 10-year-old son) have to coexist while looking good for the cameras, resulting in embarrassing encounters and hilariously awkward TV moments.


See the video trailer on the TV channel’s website here.

The whole family – mum, dad, grandma, granddad and children – will enjoy this wholesome series!

And many people will enjoy the opportunity to relax at home, switch on the television from the comfort of their favourite armchair and watch engaging entertainment from the Caribbean with genuine accents and themes.

As a first on British television, this production has an all-Caribbean cast, an all-Caribbean crew and was written, directed and produced by a Caribbean team.


If you would like to see more like this then make sure you tune in to the episodes to demonstrate that there is an audience and a market for television programmes form the Caribbean.

Let’s hope that we see more like this in the UK.
