Australian comedy series Spreadsheet, which aired in the UK on Channel 4, has reportedly been shelved after one series, The Sun reports.

Starring Katherine Parkinson (Humans, The IT Crowd). Spreadsheet poses the age-old question: can women really have it all – if by ‘all’ we mean sexual freedom, a career, a family and their sanity?

Parkinson said (via The Sun): “Spreadsheet was great fun to film in Australia, but I’ve heard nothing about a second series and I’m pretty sure I would have been contacted by now if there were going to be more.”

Spreadsheet looks to answer this conundrum, centring on a divorced, hectic mother-of-two Lauren (played by Katherine Parkinson) who is looking for sex without commitment.

Answering a call from a horny guy while her child has a meltdown about toothpaste and she struggles to find that crucial piece of paperwork for court, while dealing with ridiculous questions from her twit of an ex-husband Jake, is not the erotic experience she’s after.

To get what she wants, Lauren is going to need a watertight planner.

With the help of best friend Alex (played by Rowan Witt), Lauren develops the ‘Spreadsheet’: a database of sex options, customised to ensure her sushi train of sex rolls around with variety and order amidst the chaos of her life. What Lauren didn’t expect was a slew of needy men, which apparently even a well-managed excel tracker can’t control.

Spreadsheet is available now on Channel 4 online.
