DigitalSpy is reporting that Deadpan Pictures’ hit comedy TV series Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope will be aired in the UK on BBC Three, the public service broadcaster’s online channel.
Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope follows two Cork twenty-somethings, Aisling and Danielle, whose relationship and lifestyle starts to spiral out of control. Fuelled by mad nights out and bolstered by a sense of entitlement, these girls are running away from the reality that’s hurtling toward them.
The series stars up-and-comers Seána Kerslake, fresh off the critically acclaimed premiere of A Date for Mad Mary, and Nika McGuigan (Philomena, Traders) as Aisling and Danielle. Amy Huberman leads a strong supporting cast including Norma Sheahan (Moone Boy) and Steve Blount (Moone Boy).
Produced for RTÉ by Deadpan Pictures, with support from the BAI Sound and Vision Fund and with Content Media handling international sales, Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope, is written by Stefanie Preissner and produced by Ailish McElmeel.The six-part series
The six-part series aired on RTÉ2 last year and will air on BBC Three at an unspecified date.
