The sitcom focuses on the ironically named Leslie Winner, who, despite his best intentions, forever finds himself in disastrous situations.
The BBC explains: “Leslie Winner is an eternally-optimistic klutz with his heart in the right place. Somehow, despite his calamitous nature, he has found love with his fiancée Jemma and they are preparing for their wedding. The pressure is on Leslie to find, and keep a job, pay for the honeymoon and keep his father-in-law happy, his mum and her new boyfriend happy and hang on to Jemma long enough to walk up the aisle together. Will Leslie be a winner or will his surname continue to be ironic?”
Chris Sussman, BBC Studios‘ Head of Comedy and executive producer of Mister Winner, says: “Spencer Jones is a very funny man but a massive liability, and I can’t believe we’ve let him loose around some very expensive production equipment. Let’s hope the BBC’s insurance premiums are up to date.”
