Hullraisers gets second outing


Hull-based comedy, Hullraisers, has been recommissioned by Channel 4.

The series is written by Anne-Marie O’Connor (Trollied, Mum) and Caroline Moran (Raised By Wolves).

“We’re chuffed to bits to be heading back to Hull for more adventures by the Humber…,” said Exec Producers Faye Ward & Hannah Farrell from Fable Pictures.

“Our Hullraisers will be getting into bigger, wilder scrapes this time – we can’t wait to share what our brilliant writers are cooking up. We’re especially glad to be doing all this with our pals at Channel 4 – there is truly no better home for a female working class comedy with masses of heart.”

The next outing will see Toni (Leah Brotherhead), Paula (Sinead Matthews) and Rana (Taj Atwal) stepping into “bright new chapters of their lives where everything will be different.”

“We are so delighted to have these brilliant women, both on and off screen, back for a second outing on C4. It’s important to be able to continually back funny, working class and regional stories.  I can’t wait for viewers to see what we have in store for Toni, Paula and Rana with the delightful backdrop of Hull,” added Laura Riseam, Commissioning Editor at Channel 4 Comedy.

The Fable Pictures series, based on the Israeli hit show Little Mom is adapted for the UK by Lucy Beaumont.

It will film entirely on location in Hull and Leeds.
