Gates is an ensemble comedy headed by Sue Johnston (The Royle Family), Tom Ellis (Miranda) and Joanna Page (Gavin & Stacey) set in the all too familiar chaos of the school gates.
Mark and Helen are parents who've recently moved to the South East where their nine-year-old daughter is starting at a new primary school. And they're about to discover what happens when your children choose your friends.
Having recently moved to south-east England, Mark and Helen Pearson's daughter Chloe is about to start at a new primary school, but it's the parents with first-day nerves!
Pandemonium kicks off in the playground but it's the parents who are up to no good. Helen and Sarah exchange fisticuffs during 'Walk to School Week'.
Mark gets paternal and prepares to play dirty to stop Chloe dating. When the school installs CCTV, Miss Hunter rebels - and gets the kids to join the revolution.
