Channel 4 Derry Girls

OMD UK / Channel 4

 

Derry Girls is Channel 4’s quirky comedy set during The Troubles in Northern Ireland. The show stars Erin and her friends getting up to all sorts of hilarious capers, and features authentic 90s cultural references. But it had got off to a slow start; whilst series one became the most watched show ever in Northern Ireland, the rest of the UK were less engaged.
Channel 4 had faith however and commissioned a second series, knowing that comedies can take a while to establish themselves and capture the imagination of the public. Just look at Peep Show which was nearly scrapped after the first series.
And so this time round we were looking to make Derry Girls a national hit, realising the true potential of this original show by carving out a distinctive place in the minds of TV viewers.
