Written by Diane Morgan and Pippa Brown, Lethal will star Diane Morgan as Becky, a woman from Bolton obsessed with America and who has always wanted to live there. But, when her visa application is denied she has to come up with a Plan B. Her Plan B is simple, marry a prisoner on death row, get her Green Card and live the American Dream.
Diane Morgan says: “Some people will walk through the parched desert to get into America, some will cross a vast ocean, only one woman is prepared to marry a maniac to get there. And that woman is me. Well, a woman I play. But I probably would too.”
Shane Allen, Controller Comedy Commissioning says: “Lethal is a cleverly conceived comic tour de force in which an ill-conceived plan soon spirals and unravels disastrously. In Becky, Diane gets to flex her well-honed comedy muscles with another sublime creation.”
Diane Morgan has appeared in a number of much loved comedies in recent years including Cunk On Britain, Motherland and After Life. Diane also created, directed and starred as the lead character in BBC Two comedy Mandy, which started life as a Comedy Short in 2019 before a full series aired earlier in 2020 on BBC Two.
