UKTV’s W Channel Sets April Premiere Date For ‘Flack’ Season 2
UKTV’s W Channel as set an April premiere date for the Season 2 of ‘Flack‘ the broadcaster has announced.
Set in the fast-paced and cut-throat world of celebrity PR, ‘Flack’ reflects the brutal reality and complexities of modern life where problems can go viral in an instant. The series centres on an American PR executive (Anna Paquin) living in London who must figure out how to make the best of bad situations and somehow manage to get out unscathed.
Alongside Paquin’s celebrity PR Robyn, the series also stars Olivier and Academy Award-nominated Sophie Okonedo CBE (‘Wanderlust’, ‘Chimerica’) as PR boss Caroline, Lydia Wilson (‘About Time’, ‘Requiem’) as Eve, and Rebecca Benson (‘Game of Thrones’, ‘The White Princess’) as Melody. Genevieve Angelson will also return as Robyn’s sister Ruth, alongside Rufus Jones and Arinze Kene.
Joining them in the 2nd season will be Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actor Sam Neill who reunites with Paquin, his ‘The Piano’ co-star, when he joins the cast for a multi-episode arc as Duncan, who has a very complicated relationship with PR agency boss, Caroline. In addition, Screen Actors Guild Award winner Daniel Dae Kim (‘The Good Doctor’, ‘Hawaii Five-0’) will also star this season as Scott Cole, a tech titan who begins a romance with someone at the firm. Other Season 2 guest stars include Jane Horrocks, Giles Terera and Amanda Abbington, reprising her role as Alexa.
Season 1 left viewers in the grizzly aftermath of a Premier League footballer’s wedding, Robyn’s work and home lives having collided catastrophically when she could no longer resist the temptations of her myriad of addictions. She did manage to save Melody from the clutches of a group of dangerously ‘friendly’ footballers before firing her as the PR intern (for her own good) but closer relationships proved to be damaged beyond repair, and having been rejected by her sister and normal ‘last port in a storm’ Ruth, Robyn finally realised that she’d run out of road.
Will Eve ever forgive Robyn, and on a broader scale, with Melody frozen out, will Mills Paulson PR ever be the same again? Caroline has bigger fish to fry in a shakeup that could change her business forever. Throughout all this the team continue to try their best to keep the outrageous indiscretions of their celebrity clients firmly behind closed doors.
‘Flack‘ Season 2 premieres Monday 13th April 2020 (time TBC) on W Channel.
