A romantic comedy about one man's attempts to discover why his wife left and wins her back.

I Want My Wife Back, a six-part comedy series, premiering Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 9:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV, stars Ben Miller, Caroline Catz (Doc Martin, DCI Banks) and Jan Francis (Just Good Friends, Bad Girls) lead the cast through one man’s quest to win back his wife. Murray (Miller) is shocked when his wife Bex (Catz) walks out on their marriage on her 40th birthday. The series follows his attempts to find out why she has left him and how he can win her back... though it's less a journey than a floundering stumble in the dark towards the prize of returning his life to something approaching normality. Friends, family and colleagues are only too ready to offer advice to Murray about what he should do, and each week sees him adopt a new strategy to achieve his goal.

Episode One: Murray hears that his beloved wife Bex is leaving him while arranging a surprise 40th birthday party for her. He desperately tries to find Bex before the party but doesn't reach her in time. When they finally speak, Bex confirms that's she's walking out on Murray and their life together. In the wake of this news, Murray tries to cancel the party - but it's too late. As guests arrive and the party goes ahead, Murray and Bex are left shell-shocked by the day's events - which go from bad to worse when a birthday surprise for Bex forces Murray and Bex into a very awkward situation.
