Emily Atack Trades Sketch Comedy for Scandalous New Role in Disney+ Drama

Future plans and potential for return to ITV2

After two successful years on the air, Emily Atack's comedy sketch show, which aired on ITV2, has been put on hold.

The reason behind the hiatus is that Emily has landed a massive role on a new Disney+ drama, called Rivals. The series is based on Jilly Cooper's popular 1988 novel and will see Emily playing the character of Sarah Stratton, the wife of Deputy Prime Minister, Paul Stratton. The show is set in the fictional county of Rutshire, which is steeped in 1980s glamour.

Success of Emily's Sketch Show and Future Plans

Despite the success of Emily's sketch show, which saw her take on impressions of famous personalities like Gemma Collins and Holly Willoughby, as well as showcasing her stand-up comedy skills, the star has had to put it on the backburner due to her busy filming schedule. Emily is reportedly hoping to revisit the show in 2024 when she has more time to write new material and commit to filming dates.

Emily's Regaling of Personal Stories and Comedy Impressions

Throughout the series, Emily also regaled audiences with tales of her love life, and even opened up about an awkward encounter with a married couple that involved a three-way relationship. Her comedic impressions of celebrities were a hit with viewers, and her stand-up comedy skills were equally impressive.

Potential Future of Emily's Sketch Show

Despite there being no plans for a new series in 2023, an ITV insider stated that the show had been a great success and could potentially appear on schedules in the future. Emily is currently busy with her new role in Rivals, but her spokesperson has said that she is discussing future opportunities for the series.

Emily's Latest Role in Rivals

Emily's latest role in Rivals will see her star alongside big names such as David Tennant, Danny Dyer, and Bella Maclean. The show promises to be dramatic and edgy, with Emily's character stripping off to play tennis completely naked with her lover, just like in the book. With eight episodes in the works, fans of Emily's comedy will no doubt be eagerly anticipating her return to the small screen.
