Lindsay Lohan to join Rupert Grint and Nick Frost in new Sky 1 comedy
Lindsay Lohan will join Rupert Grint and Nick Frost for Sky 1 comedy Sick Note series two.
The Mean Girls star will portray Katerina West, the daughter of protagonist Daniel’s (played by Grint) boss.
Sky’s Head of Comedy Jon Mountague said: “One lie leads to the next in this unsettlingly brilliant comedy that will hook viewers in and have them on the very edge of their seats.
“Filming for series two is already under way and we’re delighted to confirm Lindsay Lohan will be joining Rupert and Nick in this stellar comedy cast.”
The news comes despite the fact that Sick Note‘s first series has yet to premiere on Sky 1. Series one is scheduled to debut in the Autumn.
It follows Daniel Glass, a compulsive liar who is at a dead-end at work and in his personal life. His life gets even worse when he is diagnosed with a terminal illness by incompetent Dr Glennis (Nick Frost), only to learn his diagnosis is a mistake. With that, life becomes a hilarious spiral of lies as Dr Glennis convinces Daniel to lie about his friends, family and colleagues about his misdiagnosis.
Executive producer Jo Sargent said: “We are thrilled to be making a second series of this nail-biting comedy and very excited to be welcoming the extraordinary talents of Lindsay Lohan to our all-star cast.”
