Last Tango in Halifax Premieres This Sunday

Make time this Sunday evening for LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX a brand new comedy- drama from across the pond.  Staring Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid, LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX is about romance and second chances.  Childhood sweethearts Alan (Jacobi) and Celia (Reid), both widowed and in their 70s, fall for each other all over again when they are reunited on the internet.  A bit like AS TIME GOES BY this updated version continues to celebrate love at any age.

Of course when there’s love that comes a little later it life, it also comes with family drama and baggage. Celia’s daughter Caroline, a career-focused head teacher, is worried that her mother is rushing into things with Alan.  Alan’s daughter Gillian works hard on the family farm as well as in the local supermarket. She’s dealing with the her own drama related to her younger boyfriend Paul.  Neither daughter would ever dream of getting in the way of their parents’ happiness. But somehow they just can’t help themselves.

LAST TANGO IN HALIFAX airs Sunday nights at 8pm on WOSU TV beginning September 8, with encore presentations Monday’s at 8pm on WOSU PLUS.
