HULLRAISERS RENEWED FOR SECOND SERIES ON CHANNEL 4
The Hull-based comedy will return to Channel 4 for a second series where we will see Toni, Paula and Rana stepping into bright new chapters of their lives where everything will be different... (whilst they fight to keep everything exactly the same!)
Toni and Craig's (Perry Fitzpatrick) family is growing with Baby No.2 on the way despite Toni’s denial, Paula and Dane (Yanick Ghanty) are coming to terms with Ashley (Natalie Davies) growing up and moving out.
Ashley moving out leaves a (sort of!) empty nest – and Rana’s assigned an infuriating new partner at work who will turn her universe upside down in more ways than one…
Meanwhile, Gloria (Felicity Montagu) returns to cause more havoc as the mother-in-law from hell but this time with secrets of her own, and Nima (Shobna Gulati) reveals the secret to hitting your absolute peak during your menopause years - which is something of an eyeopener for Rana.
Exec Producers Faye Ward & Hannah Farrell from Fable Pictures said: “We’re chuffed to bits to be heading back to Hull for more adventures by the Humber…Our Hullraisers will be getting into bigger, wilder scrapes this time...
"we can’t wait to share what our brilliant writers are cooking up. We’re especially glad to be doing all this with our pals at Channel4 - there is truly no better home for a female working class comedy with masses of heart.”
Laura Riseam, Commissioning Editor at Channel 4 Comedy said: “We are so delighted to have these brilliant women, both on and off screen, back for a second outing on C4...
"It’s important to be able to continually back funny, working class and regional stories. I can’t wait for viewers to see what we have in store for Toni, Paula and Rana with the delightful backdrop of Hull.”
Hullraisers has been adapted from the Israeli hit show, Little Mom, which has been recommissioned for its fifth series, and is exclusively distributed worldwide by Dori Media.
Little Mom is created and produced by Yoav Gross Productions Ltd – creators are Lital Schwartz, Shai Ben Atar, Liat Shavit and Yoav Gross with co-creators Gil Riva and Roei Florentin. Written by Liat Shavit and Shai Ben Atar for Channel 13 Israel.
The series is set to commence filming entirely on location in Hull and Leeds.
