E4 Sets May Premiere Date For Comedy Series ‘The Other Two’
E4 has set a May UK premiere date for Season 1 of US comedy ‘The Other Two‘ the broadcaster has announced today.
‘The Other Two’ is a satire of the entertainment industry that takes a cynically witty look at fame, success and belonging. The story follows siblings Cary (Drew Tarver) and Brooke (Helene Yorke) who are trying to find their place in the world. Cary is an aspiring actor, struggling to find roles. Brooke, a former professional dancer, is just trying to work out what she’s doing with her life. But it all becomes a little more complicated when their 13-year-old brother Chase (Case Walker) finds sudden internet fame as teen pop sensation ChaseDreams…
Along with Hollywood-ready mother Pat (Molly Shannon) and newly hired manager Streeter (Ken Marino), Cary and Brooke must work hard to simultaneously cash in on their brother’s success and help him as he grows up in this crazy new world.
The series is written and exec produced by former ‘Saturday Night Live’ co-head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, and has already been renewed for a 2nd season by US network Comedy Central. Lorne Michaels, the uber-Hollywood producer behind ‘SNL’, ’30 Rock’, and a bunch of other hit shows also exec produces.
‘The Other Two‘ Season 1 premieres Thursday, 23rd May 2019 with a double-bill starting at 10pm.
