HERE WE GO: FILMING BEGINS ON SECOND SERIES OF BBC COMEDY
BBC Studios Comedy Productions’ critically acclaimed series Here We Go has been commissioned for a further two series, each comprising 7x30’, for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
Created by and starring Tom Basden (After Life), series two will see the return of an all-star cast including Jim Howick (Ghosts), Katherine Parkinson (The IT Crowd) and Alison Steadman (Gavin & Stacey) alongside Freya Parks, Jude Collie, Mica Ricketts and Tori Allen-Martin (London Kills).
The series will continue to follow the Jessops’ successes and failures as they try and navigate life’s many challenges. Each episode offers an intimate, heart-warming slice of a modern British family doing its best, albeit winding others up in the process.
Creator Tom Basden, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to bring the relentlessly chaotic Jessop family back to BBC One for more homespun triumphs and disasters, and can’t wait to work with such a brilliant and hilarious cast once again.”
Josh Cole, Head of Comedy, BBC Studios commented: “We’re thrilled to be underway with a second series of Here We Go and we can’t wait to delve further into the chaotic lives of the Jessops.”
Jon Petrie, Director of BBC Comedy added: “Here We Go is a hilarious and refreshing addition to the family sitcom…family. The glowing response to the first series was enough to justify two more and we can’t wait to see what the Jessops mess up next.”
All previous episodes of Here We Go are available to watch now on BBC iPlayer.
