Daisy May Cooper working on new BBC comedy series

Daisy May Cooper, best known for ‘This Country’, will be back on the BBC with a new untitled comedy show, co-created with her best friend Selin Hizli.

The ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks’ star will be back on our screens in a new show coming to BBC One and BBC iPlayer, along with her best friend and co-star Selin Hizli, who previously appeared in ‘Deadwater Fell’.

The 35-year-old co-creator of the as-yet-untitled show said: “So excited to be writing this with my best friend and the funniest person I know on a subject that I think sums us up perfectly … toxic friendship.”

Selin called the making of the six-episode series “a dream come true”.

She said: “Everything about creating this show has been a dream come true. Jack Thorne, Lookout Point and Boffola Pictures have been incredible.

“I can’t wait to bring this dark, funny world to life with Jonny Campbell and I’m so thrilled it has found its home at the BBC. Now I just have to put up with Daisy for a bit longer while we film it…”

BBC Comedy’s former Acting Director, Kate Phillips added that she was “proud” to have Daisy continue to work with them.
