HBO Sets Season 2 of Comedy Series ‘Doll & Em’

HBO has picked up the second season of “Doll & Em,” the femme buddy comedy starring Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells.

The BSkyB production revolves around a Hollywood actress who hires her best friend as a personal assistant. In the second season, the two decide to write an Off Broadway play about themselves, luring Evan Rachel Wood and Olivia Wilde for the lead roles. Ewan McGregor and Mikhail Baryshnikov are also set as guest stars.

The six-episode order for season two is in production in New York. “Doll & Em” will bow on BSkyB’s Sky Living channel and air on HBO sometime next year.

Mortimer and Wells are again writing the episodes, with Azazel Jacobs directing. Alessandro Nivola with Kevin Comer produce for Nivola and Mortimer’s King Bee label. Andrew Eaton and Sky’s Lucy Lumsden are exec producers.
