We LOVED Doll & Em at TVO; and we’re particularly excited that a second series has been confirmed!
The highly personal comedy drama, penned by and starring Dolly Wells and her real-life friend Emily Mortimer, originally aired on Sky Living in February.
In the show, Emily plays a successful, if insecure, Hollywood star, with Dolly as her somewhat naive friend… and assistant. It provided an uncomfortably honest, but hilarious perspective on female friendship. It also included some brilliant A-lister cameos, including Bradley Cooper and Susan Sarandon!
Sky Living Channel Director Antonia Hurford-Jones said: “I am extremely pleased to be able to confirm that Doll & Em will be returning to Sky Living next year. I’m so proud to have such an outstanding series on the channel. The extraordinarily smart, brilliantly funny way Dolly and Emily bring the universal theme of female friendship alive makes it the perfect series for Living. I hope our customers are as excited as I am about series 2.”
Whether series 2 passes the Bechdel Test as effectively as the first series remains to be seen (but we suspect it will!).
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to chat to Dolly about the show and how the first series came about; to read our interview click here.
