Lindsay Lohan has joined Sky comedy Sick Note, starring Rupert Grint, Nick Frost and Don Johnson, for its newly announced second season.
Sick Note follows the story of Daniel Glass (Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and dead-end insurance job, under the thumb of his boss (Johnson). Lohan will join the show, which airs on Sky 1 in the U.K., for season two as the daughter of Johnson’s character.
The first season will air this fall, while the second season is currently shooting in the U.K.
In the first season, Grint’s character is wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor (Frost) who convinces him to hide the truth of his misdiagnosis from colleagues, friends and family in a lie that spirals out of control.
The show is part of Sky 1’s growing stable of edgier, grown-up comedies commissioned for the channel’s 10 p.m. slot. Other shows in the fall lineup for that slot include Bliss, from David Cross, starring Stephen Mangan and Heather Graham; and action comedy Bounty Hunters, from Jack Whitehall and Freddy Syborn.
Produced by British production firm King Bert, founded by producer Jo Sargent and writers and actors David Walliams and Miranda Hart, Sick Note is created and written by Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz. Matt Lipsey (Little Britain) is directing.
Said executive producer Sargent: “We are thrilled to be making a second [season] of this nail-biting comedy and very excited to be welcoming the extraordinary talents of Lindsay Lohan to our all-star cast.”
