Lindsay Lohan joins Rupert Grint and Nick Frost in Sick Note

Kirsten Howard Jun 13, 2017

Sky are so jazzed about their new show Sick Note that they're already filming season 2, with added Lindsay Lohan...

All the way back in April (think how much has happened since then, in this darkest of the timelines) we reported that Rupert Grint's Snatch TV show had been renewed for a second season. Along with this news, we were also informed that the actor's other TV show, Sick Note, had also been renewed.

Just one issue there: we'd never heard of Sick Note, let alone been in a position to celebrate its renewal. This, it turned out, was because the first season of Sky's new comedy series hadn't even started airing yet - and it still hasn't. Filming on the aforementioned second season still continues apace, however, »

Lindsay Lohan Joins ‘Harry Potter’ Star Rupert Grint’s Comedy ‘Sick Note’

12 June 2017 3:26 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lindsay Lohan (“Mean Girls”) has come on board the second season of “Sick Note,” the upcoming British comedy series that also stars Rupert Grint (“Harry Potter”), Nick Frost (“Paul”), and Don Johnson (“Miami Vice”).

The first season of the show goes out this fall on Sky in a 10 p.m. slot and on Sky’s Now TV streaming service, with Season 2 currently in production. The comedy follows Daniel Glass (Grint) as a down-on-his-luck insurance rep who is wrongly told he has a terminal illness and decides to keep the misdiagnosis from his family and friends.

Lohan will play Katerina West, the daughter of Glass’s boss (Johnson) in the second season, which is expected to bow in 2018.

“One lie leads to the next in this unsettlingly brilliant comedy that will hook viewers in and have them on the very edge of their seats,” said Sky Head of Comedy Jon Mountague. “Filming »

Miranda Hart: 'I used to think fame would justify my whole existence'

26 May 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The much-loved actor has conquered radio and TV, comedy and drama. Now she is heading to the West End stage – the realisation of a childhood dream

The name Miranda Hart has become synonymous with chaos. Every stool she encounters is there to be slipped off, every sushi restaurant conveyor belt there to get trapped in. Hers is a world where, when life hands you lemons, you drop them all on the floor, slip over the stray one that rolls away and rip your trousers as you fall.

Yet, the awkward, hapless BBC character that became beloved by millions is not the same woman as Hart is off-screen. Far from falling flat on her face at every turn, the comedian has slowly conquered much of British culture, moving from radio to television comedy and drama, A-list Hollywood film – and now the West End stage.

Adam Buxton goes to Devon, Christ’s last days get revisited and BBC1’s Waugh adaptation concludes. Plus: Graham Norton meets Miranda Hart and Peter Capaldi

As an ex-Marine, Williams seeks out more adrenaline-based pursuits, while Buxton turns accommodation reviewer before the three meet to compare notes. Hannah Verdier

Comic Relief: cast doubts and cynicism aside and stick a red nose on

24 March 2017 4:18 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It doesn’t matter if you don’t like Love Actually, French and Saunders in Carpool Karaoke or Greg Davies shouting in a hot tub – just stick your hand in your pocket

It doesn’t matter if you’re suspicious of the motives of some of the people involved (is it really all about charity, or is there an element of self-promotion?). Or if you hated Love Actually first time round, so more of it is not funny at all. Perhaps you’re uncomfortable with the sleb/slum juxtaposition, or you’re not 100% convinced that the answer to poverty in Africa is Greg Davies shouting in a hot tub on the O2. But cast your doubt and cynicism aside, even if it’s for one night only. Shut up, stick a red nose on… too much? Well, stick your hand in your pocket at least, dip into your stash.

Fabulous opening sequence, »

Doctor Who: our casting wishlist for the BBC

31 January 2017 4:44 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Now that Peter Capaldi is standing down, the 13th Doctor is all to play for. But will it be Richard Ayoade, Ben Whishaw … or Miranda Hart?

Peter Capaldi’s Doctor Who: your verdict on the outgoing Time Lord

It was hardly a surprise to learn that Peter Capaldi is to hang up his velvet jacket at the end of 2017. By the time of his exit at Christmas, he’ll have completed the standard stint of three-and-a-bit series as the Doctor. And with showrunner Steven Moffat also signing off, it stands to reason that the incumbent Chris Chibnall would want a clean slate and his own cast.
