Sky 1 has announced that Lindsay Lohan will be joining Rupert Grint and Nick Frost for the second season of its upcoming comedy series Sick Note, which is due to launch its first season this autumn.
The series follows the story of Daniel Glass (Rupert Grint), a compulsive liar stuck in a failing relationship and dead-end insurance job, under the thumb of irrepressible boss Kenny West (Don Johnson). Just when things couldn’t get any worse, Daniel is wrongly diagnosed with a terminal illness by his incompetent doctor Ian Glennis (Nick Frost). When the error comes to light, Dr Glennis convinces Daniel to hide the truth of his misdiagnosis from colleagues, friends and family in a lie that spirals wildly out of control. Season two will see Lohan joining the cast as Katerina West, the daughter of Daniel’s boss.
“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,” said Sky’s Head of Comedy Jon Mountague. “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.”
Look out for Sick Note on Sky 1 and Now TV this autumn.
