On May 23rd, a 30-second-long trailer was released on BBC’s official YouTube channel. It starts with Andy and Daniel sitting on a couch in front of a counselor who asks them why they want to adopt this kid.

Daniel says that he and Andy have a lot to offer as parents. We then see a shot of them talking to each other about how they feel. They compare the feeling to being in school and there is no one who wants to play with you. Suddenly, they stand up to a sound and there is a kid in front of them.
