A collective sigh of relief can be heard across the Motherland as a new school term dawns. It’s also dawned on Julia (BAFTA-nominated Anna Maxwell Martin) that she still hasn’t sorted her childcare. Her wonderful husband has decided to step up to the mark and train for Iron Man. Amanda (Lucy Punch) and the alpha mums are back in the cafe, rolling up their sleeves for this year’s PTA while Kevin (Paul Ready) has a new work challenge to navigate. Liz (Diane Morgan) has mastered the art of not giving a damn, and is going back to bed whilst Anne (Philippa Dunne) is just hungry. There’s a new face joining the scrum at the school gates as mum Meg (Tanya Moodie) makes an impression.
Written by Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), Holly Walsh (Dead Boss), Helen Linehan (Motherland series one), and Barunka O'Shaughnessy (Timewasters). It is a Merman Production with Delightful Industries (part of the Twofour Group). The worldwide distributors are Lionsgate.
Commissioned by Shane Allen, Controller of Comedy Commissioning and Patrick Holland, Controller of BBC Two. The Executive producers for Merman are Clelia Mountford and Sharon Horgan, with Richard Boden for Delightful and Holly Walsh. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Alex Moody.
With thanks to the BBC.
