The BBC has announced a stellar cast for the second series of hit drama Ordinary Lies
Welsh comedian Griff Rhys Jones will star in the drama, alongside Angela Griffin (Waterloo Road), Matt Di Angelo (Hustle), Kimberly Nixon (Fresh Meat), Con O’Neill (Happy Valley) and Joel Fry (W1A).
The show comes from award-winning writer Danny Brocklehurst (The Driver, Accused) and follows the lives, loves and lies of an ordinary group of colleagues at a Welsh call centre and warehouse of a sports company.
Brocklehurst promised “a new web of intrigue, secrecy and mayhem”, adding: “the new series promises more humour, heartache and shock revelations as very ordinary people find themselves in the most desperate of situations.”
Each episode of the multi-layered, ensemble drama delves into one character’s torrid and tangled web of lies, exposing the complexities and insecurities that torment otherwise these ordinary people.
Executive Producer Nicola Shindler promises that the new series will offer “a brand new set of characters and deceptions for viewers to sink their teeth into.”
The first series was a hit for BBC One, earning acclaim and an average consolidated audience of over six million.
