UKTV Original comedy show Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable (8x60’) will return to Dave for a second series starting in June 2021.
Produced by Expectation the programme sees comics and celebrities compete to convince Mel Giedroyc that they are the most unforgivable person in the room.
Giedroyc said: "I am utterly thrilled to be taking to the Unforgivable dais once more… (I love the word “dais”. It’s almost as good as “plinth”). It’s going to be an absolute cracker of a second series. I know that because I manifested it this morning.
“We’ll be welcoming in a whole roster of deliciously naughty, mucky guests, and expect some big surprises coming out of our booth too. Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to the drone. Boring old Ofcom, eh? Just a word of explanation. For those viewers who have confused this series with the film Unforgiven, much as I do have a lot in common with the story of an aging outlaw and killer who takes on one more job years after he'd turned to farming, I am Mel Giedroyc, a perimenopausal lady from Leatherhead, not Clint Eastwood, the multi-Oscar winning octogenarian hottie.”
Comedian Lou Sanders returns as Mel’s sidekick as she and Mel encourage the guests to dredge up their most outrageous sins, lies, legal transgressions and morally bankrupt behaviour.
Sanders added: “Cutie pops and sweetie pie back together at last - just like the nation demanded! Can't believe this series is going to be underwater – wait, unless that was a prank?”
Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable is commissioned by Hilary Rosen, UKTV deputy director of commissioning. The series is ordered by Richard Watsham, director of commissioning and Steve North, genre manager, comedy and entertainment. Executive producer for Expectation is Ben Wicks, and Rosen will executive produce for UKTV. Dominic Wells-Martin will series produce.
