Synopsis

The Trip is an improvised tour of the North of England that reunites comedy favourites Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. In the style of 'Curb your Enthusiasm', the story is fictional but based around their real personas.

When Steve is commissioned by a Sunday newspaper to review half a dozen restaurants, he decides to mix work with pleasure and plans a trip around the North of England with his food-loving American girlfriend. But when his girlfriend leaves him and returns to the States, Steve is faced with a week of meals for one. Reluctantly, he calls Rob, the only person he can think of who will be available. Rob, never one to turn down a free lunch, agrees and together they set off for a culinary adventure.

Over the course of six meals at six different restaurants in and around the Lake District, Lancashire and The Yorkshire Dales, the unlikely couple find themselves debating the big questions in life over a series of culinary delights.

This six-part comedy series is directed by Michael Winterbottom, and builds on the success of previous collaborations with Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, 'A Cock and Bull Story' and '24 Hour Party People'.
