Catherine Tate will reprise her iconic comedy creation, Joanie ‘Nan’ Taylor, in two further half hour specials for BBC One.
The new instalments follow a one-off special in 2014 and will enter production later this year for broadcast next year on the beeb.
“Nan is one of the most iconic comedy characters of our time and it’s thrilling to welcome her back to BBC One. Catherine’s performance is as close to comic perfection as you can get.” – Controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, Shane Allen
Tate was nominated for best female performance in a comedy programme at this month’s BAFTA Television Awards following her portrayal of the foul-mouthed OAP in last year’s special.
The former Doctor Who actress will write the specials with Brett Goldstein and Dan Swimer while Geoff Posner will oversee directing.
