‘Intelligence’: Sky One Sets June UK Premiere Date For Season 2
Sky One has set a June premiere date for Season 2 of Nick Mohammed and David Schwimmer comedy ‘Intelligence‘ the broadcaster has announced.
Created and written by Nick Mohammed, ‘Intelligence’ is a workplace comedy set in the UK’s GCHQ, where they tackle international and domestic Cyber Crime from a desktop. Season one saw arrogant, maverick NSA agent Jerry (David Schwimmer) come over from the U.S. to join the team, and enlist an inept and tactless computer analyst Joseph (Nick Mohammed) in a power grab that threatens to disrupt the team’s ability to combat cyber terrorism.
At the end of the first series (warning – SPOILERS), we saw NSA agent Jerry narrowly avoid being extradited back to the States to face charges of treason. Indebted to his boss Christine (Sylvestra Le Touzel) for stepping in to protect him at the last minute – albeit with ulterior motives – we start season two with Jerry on the back foot. However, when it’s revealed that the Russians have got their hands on a cyberweapon that Jerry was instrumental in developing, his intel suddenly becomes vital to national, if not international, security. Facing some demons from his past along the way, by the end of episode one, he is firmly back in his alpha male comfort zone and heralded a hero.
Meanwhile, Joseph has romance on the cards since sparking up an online friendship with Charlotte from the GCHQ offices in Bude. Romance blossoms and not even Jerry’s meddling nor Christine’s ban on cross-departmental relationships can get in the way.
As the series progresses, however, it soon becomes clear that while the initial cyberattack has been thwarted, the Russians are able to mutate the cyberweapon and Jerry’s personal security comes under serious threat…

Executive producers also include Nerys Evans and Morwenna Gordon for Expectation TV. Commissioned by Jon Mountague, Director of Comedy at Sky Studios and Zai Bennett, MD of Content for Sky UK.
