UKTV announced today that Sliced will return to Dave for another series while W welcomes back more Flack.
“We go again! I’m so excited to be back on Dave with series two. Last series was just a taster, now it’s go time! I’m looking forward to creating some more explosively funny and authentic stories with this amazingly talented team.” – Samson Kayo
Sliced stars Samson Kayo as Joshua, a down-on-his-luck pizza delivery driver in south London. The series is co-written by Phil Bowker and Samson Kayo and produced by Lovely Electricity.
The first series of three episodes was watched by over 1.7million viewers. The second, comprising of six episodes, will air on Dave later this year.
“Samson and Phil make for a formidable creative duo, and they are supported by an extraordinary cast of established talent and rising stars. Sliced is a show that really hits the sweet spot for Dave, we love it with a passion and we can’t wait to make more.” – Pete Thornton, Head of Scripted UKTV
Anna Paquin plays Robyn in Flack
Flack is also heading back to W with a six-part second series. The homegrown hit stars Anna Paquin in the role of Robyn – a hugely capable American PR executive working in London. She’s used to managing other people’s crises but her own personal life leaves a lot to be desired.
Series one left viewers in the grizzly aftermath of a Premier League footballer’s wedding, Robyn’s work and home lives having collided catastrophically when she could no longer resist the temptations of her myriad of addictions.
We pick up with Robyn trying to get her life back on track. Off the booze and the drugs, she’s determined to be a good girl, but news of an unexpected pregnancy sends her off the rails once more. Also back are Sophie Okonedo CBE as PR boss Caroline, Lydia Wilson as Eve, and Rebecca Benson as Melody.
“Arinze Kene, Marc Warren and Amanda Abbington return as guest stars. Series two also welcomes guest stars Sam Neill, Daniel Dae Kim, Martha Plimpton, Jane Horrocks, Doon Mackichan, Kevin Bishop and Paul Ready.” – W
