The Emily Atack Show is coming to ITV2 later this year.

The actress, writer and TV personality will star in her own show - which is set to see her perform her relatable standup comedy and mischievous sketches and skits about life as a young woman. The comedian will also show off hilarious impressions of well-loved celebrities, from Gemma Collins to Holly Willoughby.

The 6 x 45-minute series will air this autumn on ITV2. Each episode covers a different theme, including Dating, Going Out, Friends, Family, Image and Adulting. Each show topic will allow Emily to not only have real fun with her comedy but also explore her own life experiences and showcase her loveable, unfiltered self.

Emily Atack says:

“I am thrilled to be announcing this. I want to create and write a sketch show that gives snap shots into the weird and hilarious world of everyday life as a young (ish) person. I can guarantee whatever age you are you will relate in some way! It’s a dream come true, since I was a child this is the kind of television I’ve wanted to make and be part of. I can’t quite believe it.”

Head of ITV's Digital Channels, Paul Mortimer says:

"Since her appearance in the I'm A Celebrity Jungle a couple of years ago, Emily's star has been on the rise. We've been privileged to work with her a few times since on ITV2 and seen her unique brand of 'every-woman' comedy develop, engaging young audiences especially. Emily's name is in the title of this new show so it will therefore showcase her own fantastic range and versatility as an actress, mimic and stand-up comedy star."

The show is exec produced by David Granger and Andy Charles Smith for Monkey, which is part of NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group. Peter Tierney is the Commissioning Editor for ITV2.
