The 10-episode series – premiering on December 10 on FOX UK – centres on Kay (played by Maggie Lawson), a "caustic" casino boss and her handyman husband Mike (Biggs), described as a "guy's guy".

Together, they raise three highly intelligent kids – boasting challenging egos – and commit themselves to bringing some form of normalcy to a hectic household.

Outmatched is the brainchild of writer and executive producer Lon Zimmet.

Meanwhile, Biggs' former Orange Is the New Black castmate Jolene Purdy was recently cast in Disney+ series WandaVision.

Purdy played Stephanie Hapakuka in the fourth and fifth season of the Netflix series.

In Wandavision, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Scarlet Witch (aka Wanda Maximoff) and Vision, details of Purdy's character are yet to be revealed, but Deadline has confirmed that her role is recurring and that she has already finished filming her part.

Outmatched premieres Thursday, December 10 at 9pm on FOX UK.
