Ordinary Lies to return for second series
'Ordinary Lies' is set to return to screens for a second series following the success of the last one earlier this year
'Ordinary Lies' has been commissioned for a second series.
The BBC One drama proved such a huge hit with viewers when it arrived on screens earlier this year starring Jo Joyner, Shaun Dooley, Jason Manford and Michelle Keegan that it's been given the go-ahead to return for another series.
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."
Despite the success of the first series, which took place in a car sales room, the second series will explore the clandestine lives of a new group of colleagues and will be set in the headquarters of a national sports goods company.
Polly Hill, Controller BBC Drama Commissioning, 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."
'Ordinary Lies' will go into production next year.
