Pop's 'Hollywood Darlings' Renewed for Second Season
Pop is ready for more Hollywood Darlings.
The comedy series starring Fuller House's Jodie Sweeten, 7th Heaven alum Beverly Mitchell and Step by Step grad Christine Lakin has been renewed for a second season.
The docu-comedy series sees the three '90s starlets play exaggerated versions of themselves — Curb Your Enthusiasm — as they navigate parenting, love, friendship and show business.
"Hollywood Darlings re-introduced us as grown-ups — three super fly and super funny women juggling it all and willing to laugh at ourselves,” the trio said in a statement. “Getting to continue this sisterhood on screen is the height of amazing, and we can’t wait for the magic to continue in season two.”
Production begins this fall on season two. Main Event Media and All3Media America co-produce the series, which is exec-produced by creator Jimmy Fox, Layla Smith and Greg Lipstone.
“Now that Jodie, Beverley and Christine have settled into adulthood, the real fun is just beginning,” said Pop head of original programming Justin Rosenblatt. “The new season of Hollywood Darlings will once again connect fans to the faces they grew up loving, turning on its head what they thought they knew about these three women.”
Pop, a joint venture of CBS Corp. and Lionsgate, continues to push into original programming with comedies like Ali Wentworth's Nightcap, Return of the Mac, Canadian import Schitt's Creek, Swedish Dicks as well as upcoming programs including the Will Arnett-produced Hot Date.
"Our comedies really do separate us from a lot of the cable networks that are trying to break through with provocative dramas," Pop president Brad Schwartz told The Hollywood Reporter in April. "Everyone seems to be going for the big, sexy drama that can sell internationally and clever scripted comedies is in a unique lane in cable."
