BBC3 pays Lip Service another series

Production begins on a new second run for the Glasgow-set lesbian drama

Harriet Braun’s controversial drama Lip Service will return to BBC3 next year for a second series about young lesbians in Scotland.

Ruta Gedmintas, Laura Fraser and Fiona Button are all returning and will be joined by new faces including Anna Skellern who makers Kudos describe as as a “straight talking Australian doctor, Lexy, who’s turning heads and attracting attention.”

Also joining the cast of women are Neve McIntosh, Being Human’s Sinead Keenan and Alana Hood. Then James Anthony Pearson and Emun Elliott are back but now joined by Adam Sinclair as “irreverent, gay doctor, Declan Love.”

“This second series has given me a chance to develop more compelling stories for our characters as well as mixing things up with some new and intriguing faces,” said writer/creator Harriet Braun.

Executive Producer Derek Wax added: “The world and characters Harriet created captured people’s imaginations in a way we could never have anticipated. It is so exciting to be back in Glasgow working with her, our tremendous cast and such an amazing Scottish team on the second series.”
