Second Series For 'Living The Dream'

News Image
A second series of 'Living The Dream', a Sky Original Production, is set to air on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV in 2018.

With filming commencing in Spring 2018, the second installment of the comedy drama follows Philip Glenister and Lesley Sharp as Mal and Jen Pemberton, and their teenage children Tina (Rosie Day) and Freddie (Brenock O'Connor) as they leave Britain behind for a better life in the USA. However, it doesn't take long for the family to arrive in Florida to realise that they aren't going to be living the American dream they had hoped for.

Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky One, said: "It's a great pleasure to take Sky One viewers back to the sunshine state in 2018. Season one made stars of the Pembertons and in season two they'll earn their stripes. But will the locals let them? Watch this space, or as Mal might unadvisedly say, 'see you later alligator'."

Living the Dream is created and written by Mick Ford and produced by Big Talk Productions. The series was recommissioned by Sky One's channel director, Adam MacDonald and Jon Mountague, Sky's head of comedy. James Dean returns as producer alongside executive producers Luke Alkin, Kenton Allen and Matthew Justice for Big Talk Productions, and Simon Curtis and Mick Ford.
