Benidorm is a British comedy-drama television series that is written and created by Derren Litten, co-writer of The Catherine Tate Show, and produced by Tiger Aspect for ITV.
Exploiting the working class stereotype of the popular Spanish tourist destination Benidorm, the television series features an ensemble cast. Set primarily in the Solana all-inclusive resort hotel, Benidorm follows regulars and first-time holiday makers on their holidays abroad. Despite their disparate backgrounds they all have one thing in common—a quest for getting value for money.
The television series debuted on ITV1 on 1 February 2007. Critically acclaimed for much of its run, Benidorm has received awards and nominations including several National Television Awards and nominations at the British Comedy Awards and BAFTAs.
