BBC Three acquires Warner Bros’ Shrill
November 26, 2019
BBC Three has acquired the UK rights from Warner Bros Television for the comedy series Shrill. The first season will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer from December 15th.
The series stars Aidy Bryant (of Saturday Night Live fame) as Annie, an overweight young woman who wants to change her life – but not her body. It is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks.
Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, says: “Annie is such a relatable and engaging character, I am sure that BBC Three viewers will enjoy watching her navigate her way through life with warmth, humour and increasing confidence.”
After its successful airing in the US, a second season of Shrill has already been commissioned.
