BBC One have announced that Danny Brocklehurst’s Ordinary Lies will return for a second series.
Whilst the first series explored the lives of a number of people working in a car showroom, the second series will focus on a new workforce. The six-episode series will be set in the headquarters of a large, national sports goods company with an array of new, compelling and clandestine characters.
Of the new Danny Brocklehurst said, “the audience response to the first series of Ordinary Lies was truly overwhelming so I’m delighted that we can bring it back for a second series. We were incredibly lucky with a stellar cast for series one – all of whom gave gripping performances which not only translated into great ratings but also critical acclaim. The second series will explore the clandestine lives of a new group of colleagues whose 9 to 5 personas belie a much darker personal life.”
Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning Polly Hill added, “Danny’s brilliant scripts really do make the ordinary lives of our characters become extraordinary. His warm, funny and clever stories will once again make gripping viewing for our BBC One audience.”
Casting for the new series will be announced in due course.
