UKTV has commissioned a second series of The Interviews, the hit series which charts the career and personal story of legendary celebrities using their most memorable moments from British TV chat shows.
The series proved a big hit with audiences on GOLD when it debuted last year and is returning with a line-up which includes Peter Sellers, Frankie Howerd, Barry Humphries and his larger-than-life alter ego Dame Edna Everage, and Kenny Everett.
Voiced by actress and comedian Tamsin Grieg (Episodes, Inside No. 9), the series will once again combine “some remarkably frank interviews” with archive material to bring viewers an authoritative insight into the personal lives of these entertainment icons.
Steve North, general manager for Gold said, “We are incredibly excited to be bringing back The Interviews for a second series. We were delighted in the first series ability to explore the lives of some of our most loved entertainers in such an original manner.
“Series two promises more of the same and with an incredible line up of Peter Sellers, Barry Humphries, Frankie Howerd, Julie Walters, Bruce Forsyth and Kenny Everett there should be plenty more surprises in store.”
