Motherland is well into its second series, much of which was filmed in Ealing. The series is well worth a watch based on the writing team alone, with Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) and Graham Linehan (Father Ted) lending their not inconsiderable talents. The main character Julia, played by Anna Maxwell Martin, has her house set on a location in Acton. Watch out for a dramatic Halloween party night there! The school where the mum’s (and one dad) collect their kids is in that neck of the woods too.
