HBO announced today that the six new episodes of the Emmy-nominated series Tracey Ullman’s Show will kick off on Friday, September 28 (midnight-12:30 a.m. ET/PT). Emmy winner Ullman stars as a wide array of famous faces and everyday people in the sketch comedy show, which looks at modern life and current social figures through a comedic lens.
Over the course of the new season, Ullman uses her signature brand of sharp satire to shape-shift into a range of public figures and offbeat original characters. She reprises her characterizations of Dame Judi Dench, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Jerry Hall, and introduces her takes on British Prime Minister Theresa May, French First Lady Brigitte Macron and U.S. First Lady Melania Trump, among others.
More topical than ever before, Tracey Ullman’s Show satirizes today’s culture, including television’s latest obsession with strong but messy female characters, the future possibilities for smart-home devices, life in a post-Brexit world and the absurdity of the 24-hour news cycle.
Tracey Ullman’s Show was recently nominated for two Primetime Emmys, including Outstanding Variety Sketch Series for the second year in a row.
Season three was devised by and stars Tracey Ullman. The executive producers are Tracey Ullman and Gareth Edwards, and the producer is Caroline Norris.
