Daisy May Cooper and Selin Hizli’s comedy thriller, Am I Being Unreasonable? has been commissioned for a second series on BBC One and iPlayer.

Daisy May Cooper & Selin Hizli, writers-creators say: “When we first started writing this show we never dreamed it would get commissioned, let alone get another series. We’re so grateful to everyone who has watched it and we promise we will work our hardest to make the second series even better than the first… It’s gonna hit you with all the grace and decorum of a reversing dump truck without any tyres on.”

Jon Petrie, Director of BBC Comedy says: “We had so many questions after binging the first series that we were selfishly desperate to have more AM I BEING UNREASONABLE in our lives. Luckily, we know that our viewers feel the same way. Thank you to Daisy May Cooper, Selin Hizli, Jack Thorne and everyone at Boffola for creating such a funny, thrilling, genre-bending show. We can’t wait to see what happens next.”

Pippa Brown, Creative Director for Lookout Point says: “What a privilege to be able to work with Daisy and Selin and the hugely talented team on Am I Being Unreasonable? again. It’s a giddy mix of joy and fear knowing where their comedically genius and genuinely terrifying brains will take Nic and Jen and the cast for a second series. We’re all very proud and happy to get going, thank you BBC.”

Jonathan Blyth, Commercial & Partnerships Director for Comedy at BBC Studios, adds: “We are thrilled about the news of a second series. Daisy, Selin & Boffola have produced one of the most talked about shows of the year. We’re excited to be working with the BBC and our key partners to bring this terrific series to audiences around the world and establish it as a major global comedy brand”.
