Showtime will help the Beeb produce a second run of the BBC Three comedy show…
Showtime’s ongoing deal with the BBC has just helped to greenlight a second series of the Daisy Haggard comedy project, Back To Life.
Back To Life stars Haggard as Miri, a woman who attempts to make a life for herself in society after spending almost two decades in prison – it’s funnier than it sounds, we promise!
The first series, which was released on BBC Three earlier in the year, was beloved by critics, and US audiences also warmed to the show.
“Back to Life is a charming, funny and introspective comedy that resonates beautifully with Showtime viewers,” said Showtime Entertainment president Jana Winograde (via THR). “With such sharp writing and sensitive, winning performances from Daisy and the cast, we are confident that this gem from across the pond has even more delights to share with us in season two.”
“Laura and I are delighted that Showtime and the BBC are giving us a chance to continue Miri’s story,” said Harggard. “There’s so much more to tell, and we are incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to do that.”
“The reception that Back to Life has received has been amazing,” said producer Harry Williams. “Daisy and Laura are those rare writers that can make you laugh and cry in equal measure – which is a wonderful quality. We can’t wait for fans to see what they have in store for Miri this time around.”
