Public broadcaster BBC2 has commissioned The Kitchen, a three-hour, three-episode series capturing UK family life around the dinner table.

Produced by Studio Lambert, the series captures eight families on video as they cook and eat together, and is the latest contemporary look at family mealtime traditions.

“It gives an intimate snapshot of how some of us live, eat and talk right now, reflecting British humor and eccentricities, as well as the topics of conversation gripping dinner tables around the country,” said Emma Willis, head of documentaries for BBC1, BBC2 and BBC4, in a statement.

With Studio Lambert’s Ros Ponder acting as executive producer and the BBC’s Mike Cotton acting as series producer, The Kitchen will premiere in October at a date yet to be determined.
