The Dry Series 2
 

The Dry S2

Award-winning playwright and BAFTA-nominated screenwriter Nancy Harris (Dates) and acclaimed director Paddy Breathnach (Viva, Rosie) return to helm the second season of this acclaimed comedy drama. 

Roisin Gallagher returns as recovering alcoholic Shiv Sheridan, alongside regular cast members from the first series.

The second series picks up seven months on from the events of the first, and we now meet the Sheridans in their new normal. To all outward appearances, it seems like the family is relatively content: Shiv’s been sober, celibate, and solvent for 6 months, Ant has hung onto his job at the estate agents and his relationship with Max, and Caroline’s making up for a lost time by shagging everyone she meets on Tinder. So far, so normal… Or is it? After all, how normal is it for 3 grown adults to still be living at home with their parents? And are the Sheridans really happy with this new status quo, or have they just rearranged their dysfunction and found another groove of denial to fit into? 

ITVX Kids: 

Pocoyo Series 2

Meet Pocoyo, the unforgettable little boy with a very big personality! Your child will learn through laughter with Pocoyo and all his friends Elly, Pato, Loula, and Sleepy Bird.

Deep in the Bowl is a sketch show like no other, over the course of punchy five-minute episodes we take a look at the lives fish lead when humans aren’t looking.

Goldfish family, kung-fu master, rappers crew, pet shop inmates or misfit students… they’re all trying to fit into the aquarium. And somewhere, maybe even in YOUR house, they’re casting a fishbowl reflection on our own lives.

Coop Troop (new episodes)

Coop Troop features the entertaining exploits of a gang of five unlikely heroes: hyperactive rabbit Maggie, eccentric inventor Flo the chicken, bon vivant swine Clive, excitable lamb Billy and enigmatic egg, Jo d’Oeuf. Thirsty for adventure to escape their mundane farm life, The Coop Troop’s mission is to help any animal with a problem – and they’re kept very busy by the precious, pampered pets of neighbouring town, Animauville.
