UKTV’s Gold channel has picked up a six episode second season of their original comedy series You, Me & Them, which stars Anthony Head and Eve Myles.
You, Me & Them tells the story of Ed (Anthony Head) and Lauren (Eve Myles). The couple are madly in love, but Lauren’s family and everyone around them seems to have an opinion on their relationship, and specifically, their 20 plus-year age gap.
The comedy series was created by Steve Turner and produced by veteran comedy producers Hat Trick Productions. Angela Sinden serves as the producer, while the executive producers are Helen Williams and UKTV’s Simon Lupton. The second season is set to air in 2015 and will feature an all-star cast, with Hat Trick currently in talks with “big name” talent for cameo roles.
“The first series of You, Me & Them was funny, engaging and a perfect fit for Gold’s audience, and we’re looking forward to even more laughs in this second series”, said Gold’s General Manager Steve North, who commissioned the second season alongside UKTV’s Director of Commissioning Richard Watsham. “We’re thrilled the charming Anthony Head and talented Eve Myles are back, and we’re in talks with high profile talent for cameo roles.”
You, Me & Them was commissioned last year as part of UKTV’s push into scripted originals and has the distinction of becoming the first such scripted original to make it to a second season. The comedy aired on Gold in October 2013 and managed to beat the channel’s 12 month slot average across its six week run.
