Ellie White and Natasia Demetriou return for a second series of their critically-acclaimed sketch show featuring characters such as the coffee spotters, the Brothers Pomodoro and a girl with a pixie haircut.
The first series landed Natasia Demetriou with a nomination for best female performance in a comedy at this year’s BAFTAs, whilst the series itself was shortlisted for a Rose d’Or Award and won the award for best sketch series at the Comedy.co.uk Awards 2023. It has also just been nominated for best comedy programme at the 2023 Broadcast Digital Awards.
Ellie and Natasia say: “When the BBC came crawling on their knees begging us for a series 2 we didn’t have it in our hearts to say no. It is our pleasure to provide our stunning and excellent sketches and characters to help out the darling little BBC – it’s God’s work and someone has to do it.”
Mobashir Dar, Executive Producer, adds: “The BBC wanting more Ellie & Natasia is such fantastic news. All rise and hail the queens of comedy!”
