The series is a spin-off of The A Word, the family drama which follows the Hughes family as their son, five-year-old Joe, is diagnosed with autism.

The A Word’s creator, Peter Bowker, will write the six-part series alongside a team of new and emerging disabled writers.

Ralph And Katie will follow the young couple as they embark on their first year of married life, and the challenges and triumphs that come with it.
