"FLACK" IS BACK

SECOND SEASON OF DARK COMEDY STARRING OSCAR(R) WINNER ANNA PAQUIN PREMIERES MARCH 13 ON POP TV

Sam Neill, Daniel Dae Kim And Martha Plimpton To Star In Season Two

Los Angeles, CA - January 13, 2020 - Crisis averted! Pop TV today announced the return of the dark comedy FLACK, set in the world of a celebrity crisis PR firm, starring Academy Award(R) and Golden Globe(R) winner and Emmy(R)-nominated actress Anna Paquin (True Blood, The Affair on SHOWTIME(R)). The six-episode season will premiere on Friday, March 13 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and features new cast members Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actor Sam Neill, Screen Actors Guild Award(R) winner Daniel Dae Kim and guest star Emmy-winner Martha Plimpton. Executive Producer Stephen Moyer will direct two of the season's episodes. Pop TV will make the entire second season available on its app Pop Now and via cable and satellite video on demand after the Network premieres the first episode.

The second season picks up with Robyn (Paquin) putting her life back together after her myriad of addictions got the better of her at the end of season one. Focusing on rebuilding her relationship with her sister and keeping her clients out of the headlines, she must also face a new and unexpected revelation head-on. Meanwhile, her boss Caroline (Tony(R) Award winner and Oscar(R) nominee Sophie Okonedo CBE) is surprised to see her ex (Neill) return, while Eve (Lydia Wilson) is tasked with keeping new client Gabriel Cole (Kim) satisfied, and Melody (Rebecca Benson) is adjusting to a new life after leaving the firm. Plimpton will appear in an episode as Robyn's late mother.

Genevieve Angelson (Titans, Good Girls Revolt) also returns as Robyn's sister Ruth, alongside Rufus Jones (Home) and Arinze Kene. Other season two guest stars will include Jane Horrocks, Giles Terera and Amanda Abbington, reprising her role as Alexa.

"FLACK is at once gritty, in your face and laugh-out-loud funny, a testament to Anna Paquin and the rest of the amazing team - which we are thrilled now includes the powerhouse talents of acclaimed actors Sam Neill, Daniel Dae Kim and Martha Plimpton," said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Pop TV. "In the must-watch second season, the often-recalcitrant Robyn tries to reconcile her relationships while her family, friends and colleagues, all while her client dilemmas interfere, often by her own doing, with everyone's lives building to an irreversible apex."

FLACK returns to Pop TV's slate of acclaimed comedies with a point of view, including the Emmy-nominated SCHITT'S CREEK, the fan-favorite series ONE DAY AT A TIME, the critical darling FLORIDA GIRLS. The Network will encore the first season starting Friday, Feb. 21 with back-to-back episodes at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET/PT leading into the season two premiere. Fans can also catch up by watching on Pop Now and via cable and satellite video on demand.

FLACK is a Pop TV original series, co-produced with UKTV's W Network, written by Oliver Lansley, produced by Debs Pisani (Back to Life, Episodes on SHOWTIME) and executive produced by Jimmy Mulville and Helen Williams of Hat Trick Productions. Pete Thornton executive produces for UKTV. Anna Paquin executive produces for CASM alongside Stephen Moyer, Cerise Hallam Larkin and Mark Larkin. The series will be directed by Alicia MacDonald, Oliver Lansley and Stephen Moyer.
