BBC Two has confirmed that W1A, the apparently fictional fly-on-the-wall comedy chronicling decision making at the broadcaster, will be returning for a second series next year.

Written by John Morton, the series stars Hugh Bonneville as Ian Fletcher, the BBC’s Head of Values and shows his clashes with the corporation’s buzz-word laden, PR-focused management structure.

Shane Allen, Controller, Comedy Commissioning, says: “There’s an all-too-painful yet comedic delight in John’s ability to pick away at the scab of modern corporate piffle and bureaucratic absurdity.

“We can’t wait to see what dysfunctional madness lies ahead for Ian Fletcher and colleagues in this sly fiction.”
