The hugely successful hit comedy series Grandma’s House returns to TV tonight at 10pm on BBC2, starring SAMANTHA SPIRO.
Grandma’s Houseis a comedy created and written by Simon Amstell, centering around Simon (playing himself) and his eccentric Jewish family.
The full cast returns tonight for Series 2 (a 6-parter) and SAMANTHA is back in the hilarious role of ‘Auntie Liz’, for which her performance in Series 1 won her the 2010 British Comedy Award for Best Female Comedy Breakthrough Artist.
Tonight’s opening episode is called “The Day Simon Officially Became a Very Good and Totally Employable Actor”. It’s been six months since the death of Grandpa, and Simon is living with Grandma. He has lost his presenting career and London flat, but is now set to act in a low-key BBC comedy. Tanya and Liz haven’t spoken to each other since their father’s funeral, and Grandma makes an underhanded attempt at bringing them back together. Meanwhile, for the sake of the reunion, man-of-the-house Simon needs to get rid of an interesting young visitor and an uncomfortably persistent Clive.
Check out a little teaser from tonight’s ep below. Grandma’s House Series 2 will continue on Thursdays at 10pm on BBC2.
