Miranda is a sitcom starring British comedian and writer Miranda Hart which airs on the BBC. Miranda is the 30-something tall, awkward owner of a joke shop and boutique, which is managed by her best friend Stevie. Miranda constantly gets herself into uncomfortable, embarrassing comedic situations and is often mistaken for a man. She lives in a small apartment above her joke shop. Her mother, Penny, is disappointed by her life choices and is always nagging her to get a real job and a husband. Miranda is attracted to chef and old university friend Gary, who owns the restaurant next door to the joke shop. Both occasionally try to date but something always goes wrong.
Although she comes from an upper middle-class background and attended private schools, Miranda cannot fit in with the culture. Her old friend, Tilly, is the opposite of Miranda and advises her on how to look nicer and attract men. She comes off as brash and rude, but really is looking out for Miranda's best interests. She may not be nice, but she's not purposely mean and has good intentions. Unlike Tilly, Stevie is a much more loyal friend to Miranda and doesn't try to push a normal life onto her best friend. Between her overbearing mother, oddball friends and her own strange personality, Miranda's life is as crazy as it gets.
Miranda has done well at awards ceremonies. The Royal Television Society has awarded Miranda Hart with comedy performance prizes in 2010 and 2011 for her work on the show. The show has numerous nominations and wins at the British Academy Television Awards, the Monte Carlo Television Festival, the Broadcast Awards, the British Comedy Awards, and the British Academy Television Craft Awards. Series 1-3 are available on DVD in regions 2 and 4. A fourth series of the sitcom will be produced, but because of Hart's busy schedule, it may not film or air for several years after the end of series three.
