The producer of Fleabag – Phoebe Waller Bridge’s BAFTA-winning BBC3 comedy – has said that she would love to bring Meryl Streep on board for series two.
Fleabag is the story of a thirty-something woman living in London, trying to navigate her own life while dealing with the tragedy of her best friend’s death.
Lydia Hampson – one of 2017’s BAFTA Breakthrough Brits and the producer of Fleabag – told RadioTimes.com that she would like to integrate the story of a woman in her later years in series two, alongside the experience of Fleabag herself.
“I’d love there to be an older woman in it. We didn’t really explore a storyline of what happens to women as they get older in society, and too often women are deemed irrelevant as they age,” Hampson said.
“So I would absolutely love someone like Meryl Streep to come in and have a cameo as – I mean, I don’t know if she’s even aware of what the show is – but I’d love to find a really brilliant older actress to come in and do something really unexpected.”
Meryl, if you’re reading this, you know what to do.
