Comedian Julia Davis will create and star in a new comedy series “Sally4Ever” that will be a coproduction between HBO and British broadcaster Sky, the companies announced Tuesday.
The half-hour comedy stars Catherine Shepherd as Sally, a soon-to-be-promoted marketer that has an affair with Emma, (Davis) who throws her life into chaos by moving in with her. Davis wrote and directed the comedy, which includes seven episodes.
“I’m so excited to be making this project with Various Artists Ltd for Sky and HBO, and am incredibly lucky to be working with such an outstanding cast and receiving such great support and creative guidance from Sky and HBO,” said Davis.
“Sally4Ever” will be produced in the UK for both Sky and HBO by production companies Hush Ho and Various Artists Ltd.
“We’ve been in comedy awe of Julia for many, many years,” said Amy Gravitt, executive vice president, HBO Programming. “We’re thrilled to be a part of her latest stroke of genius, and to be working alongside Sky One, Hush Ho and Various Artists in the process.”
“Sally4Ever” will be available on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV later this year.
