Hulu’s original comedy “The Wrong Mans,” which it co-produces with BBC Comedy, is returning for a second season on December 24.
Starring James Corden, who’s about to take over Craig Ferguson’s spot on late night, and Mathew Baynton, the half-hour comedy series follows two everyday office workers whose lives are turned upside down due to a case of mistaken identity. In season two, after being presumed dead, the men set off on an international quest to get home for the holidays.
The series is created and written by Corden and Baynton. The duo star alongside Dawn French, Rebecca Front, Sarah Solemani, Tom Basden, and Alec Utgoff. The season two cast will also feature Anastasia Griffith (“Damages”), John Ross Bowie (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), and Bertie Carvel (“Sherlock”).
BBC Worldwide handles distribution for “The Wrong Mans,” which is produced and directed by Jim Field Smith (“Episodes”).
