Where is the Friday Night Dinner house?

Every episode of the comedy is set inside the 'family home', which is actually a real property based in Mill Hill, North London.

The show is written by Robert Popper, who also co-created the mock BBC documentary Look Around You, and tells the story of two brothers Adam and Jonny who return to their parents house for dinner once a week for the Jewish sabbath.

The show has long been subject to rumours of an American remake.

Deadline Hollywood announced in September 2011 that Greg Daniels, the brains behind adapting The Office for American television, would spearhead an American remake of the series for the broadcast network NBC.

The remake was picked up for a pilot, and even featured Academy Award winner Allison Janney, but was not picked up for a series.

Is Friday Night Dinner filmed in a real house?

The Friday Night Dinner house is a real property in Mill Hill, North London.

Actress Tamsin Greig, who plays the role of mum Jackie, previously spoke of the difficulty surrounding filming, as she said: "It's not an easy show to film, we are in a house and it feels like a Jewish Big Brother."

How much is the Friday Night Dinner house worth?

According to Global Film Locations, as of 2018 the house was worth £1.5million.

Tamsin Greig did once reveal how conscious she is of making a mess inside what is another family's home, saying: "With the food I worry about the waste but I find it funny. I had to throw a lot of roast potatoes at Simon Bird."
