Boy Meets Girl to return for Second Series

by | Jan 19, 2016 | All, TV News

Having delighted audiences with its sensitive but warm and accessible portrayal of a love affair between an older transgender woman and a younger cisgender male, BBC Two has announced that they have ordered a second series of the charming comedy Boy Meets Girl from Tiger Aspect Productions.

Shane Allen, BBC Controller of Comedy Commissioning, said: “This series demonstrates comedy’s unique ability to bring insight, warmth and understanding to challenging subjects, and encapsulates the three bedrocks of the BBC’s duty to inform, educate and entertain. A welcome return for this warm-hearted love story with a twist. Expect lots more out and out bawdy comedy alongside some very tender and touching moments in this very modern take on a rom-com.”

Kim Shillinglaw, Controller of BBC Two and BBC Four, added: “Comedy is central to BBC Two’s DNA, and I want the channel to be a place where writers and creatives can do their most distinctive work. Boy Meets Girl was created from the heart and I’m so pleased that Elliott Kerrigan, Simon Carlyle and all the team behind this fabulous series are returning for another one. Boy Meets Girl ventured into territory that classic sitcom has never seen before in Britain, but did it with a warmth and an authenticity that BBC Two viewers really responded to, and I can’t wait to see what happens next for Judy, Leo and all the other wonderful cast of characters.”

Tiger Aspect’s Executive Producer, Margot Gavan Duffy, said: “Tiger Aspect is delighted to have another opportunity to work with this incredibly talented team and to find out What Leo and Judy did next!”

The series was endorsed by the transgender community and recently won the Trans Media Award at the Stonewall Awards.

The show is due to go into production in Manchester next month and is scheduled to air in 2016.
