Tracey Ullman is to return to BBC One with a special comedy show poking fun at the 2017 General Election.
“I’m excited the BBC has asked me to make a show at this time. We’ve decided to shake it up with a more topical format because things move so fast these days it’s like every 10 minutes I’m voting for something.” – Tracey Ullman
Following a recent return to the beeb and two successful series of Tracey Ullman’s Show, the singer, actress, impressionist and comedian is to make a further outing on BBC One with a half hour special to transmit in the aftermath of the election.
Tracey Breaks The News will be filmed close to transmission, and will feature the return of series favourites Angela Merkel and Nicola Sturgeon. And Tracey will also be tackling Theresa May for the first time. The show will be a mix of famous political figures and everyday people, all reacting to the aftermath of the general election and the anniversary of the Brexit vote. It’s no longer just a view of the UK – this show will feature Russians, Europeans, and a new take on Melania Trump.
“There’s never been a better time to be imitating world famous political women, and I admire and thank them all: Angela Merkel, Nicola Sturgeon, and my home girl newbie Theresa May. I can’t wait to get stuck in – thanks to the BBC and my brilliant team. It really is a privilege.” – Tracey Ullman
