ROISIN CONATY'S GAMEFACE AXED BY CHANNEL 4

Channel 4 comedy axed after two series.



Conaty stars as the series’ gung-ho heroine, Marcella, a 30-something aspiring actress with a chaotic life and big dreams. The first series swooped between laugh-out-loud silliness and tender, truthful observation as Marcella grappled with her career, overcame heartbreak and dealt with her eccentric family. All with her questionable life-coach, best friends and long-suffering driving instructor by her side.


The first series launched in October 2017, and was the biggest comedy launch for E4 since 2013.


A spokesperson for Channel 4 confirmed to British Comedy Guide: "We were hugely proud to air two series of the game changing GameFace; Roisin deserves so much credit for paving the way in modern female led comedy. The time felt right to draw a line and we've decided not to return to Marcella's wonderfully chaotic life, but hope to work with Roisin again on something new."
