Real-life best friends Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells return with a second instalment of their bittersweet self-penned comedy that offers an honest and satirical take on the joy and pain of female friendship.

Following the ups and down they experienced in Series 1 when Hollywood actress Em hired bestie Doll as her PA, the duo's relationship is now back on an even keel as they embark on a writing project together...

Squirrelled away in a lighthouse retreat, Doll and Em work on a Broadway play for them to also star in. But on returning to New York, they're soon dealt a reality check when a meeting with a big-name producer doesn't quite go as planned.

Quickly bouncing back, they decide to produce and direct the play themselves, turning to Doll's old flame Buddy for help in a finding a theatre to house their project.

As everything starts to fall into place, could Em's potential new movie hinder the play before it even gets off the ground?
