BBC One has commissioned a second series of Danny Brocklehurst‘s drama, Ordinary Lies.

The new six-part series, will follow a new group compelling and clandestine characters who work at the headquarters of a large, national sports goods company.

Writer and executive producer 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.”

Polly Hill, Controller of BBC Drama Commissioning, says: “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.”

Produced by RED Production Company, Ordinary Lies series 1 achieved an average consolidated audience of over 6 million. Filming on series 2 will begin in 2016.
