Pregnancy drama to return to BBC One
BBC One has recommissioned Kay Mellor’s pregnancy drama In The Club for a second series of six episodes.
Produced by Mellor’s Rollem Productions, the first series attracted five million viewers and starred Hermione Norris, Jill Halfpenny, Katherine Parkinson and Will Mellor.
On the news of a second series, Kay Mellor said: “I’m absolutely delighted for Rollem to be commissioned to produce a second series of In the Club for BBC One. On a personal note, the whole experience from script to screen was such a positive one for me. It’s going to be a bit of a juggling process as I’d love to bring all the characters back but I also want to introduce some new stories. One thing’s for sure, I can’t wait to start the whole process again.”
Charlotte Moore added: “BBC One viewers really took the characters to their hearts and it was exciting to see the show build across the six episodes. Kay Mellor’s story about a group of pregnant women celebrated life in all its joy and tragedy and I’m looking forward to the delivery of series two.”
The second series of In The Club will begin filming in Leeds in 2015.
