Casting announced for BBC Two comedy series Mandy
Mandy is a brand new comedy series written directed and starring Diane Morgan (Cunk On Britain, Motherland, After Life).
Mandy is a woman with dreams. Big dreams. Most of all she dreams of breeding Doberman Pinchers. But there are hurdles to overcome before that dream can become a reality. In the series we’ll see her go on a health kick, rent out her small back bedroom on Airbnb and attempt a series of short-lived jobs in the modern gig economy.
The cast features guest stars including Tom Basden (Plebs, After Life), David Bradley (Game Of Thrones), Natalie Cassidy (EastEnders), Sean Lock (15 Storeys High, 8 Out Of 10 Cats), and Maxine Peake (Peterloo, Anne, The Bisexual).
They’ll join the regular cast of Michelle Greenidge (After Life, Code 404), Alistair Green (Flowers, Stath Lets Flats), Mark Silcox (Man Like Mobeen, Rovers), Michael Spicer (The Mash Report, The Room Next Door), and of course Diane Morgan herself as Mandy.
Mandy also stars Jackie Clune (Motherland), Emily Dean (The Day Of The Triffids), Masashi Fujimoto (47 Ronin), Akemnji Ndifornyen (Famalam, Shrill, Leonardo), broadcaster Iain Lee and Tony Way (Giri/Haji, Edge Of Tomorrow).
