Mad Dogs 2, Return to Mallorca

Palma Pictures are delighted that there will be a second series of Mad Dogs, the hit drama, created by Left Bank Pictures and commissioned by Sky One.

Mad Dogs 2, Sky One, MallorcaMad Dogs 2 will be filming here in Mallorca during the summer and Palma Pictures will once again be providing local production services. The new series will comprise of 4 hour-long episodes and will air on Sky One in early 2012 – all of the cast (Max Beesley, Philip Glenister, John Simm and Marc Warren) have been optioned for a potential third series too.

The story will pick up where series one ended with Woody, Baxter and Rick driving away from the villa as Quinn has chosen to stay and make a new life in Mallorca. In the opening scenes you will see Woody, Baxter and Rick have a change of heart and turn back and that’s when things will start getting really interesting!

Mad Dogs 1 was a huge success, it was one of the most viewed shows ever on Sky One and it has been nominated for a BAFTA (Drama Serial) and here at Palma Pictures we’re sure that Series 2 will fare even better.

Stuart Murphy, Director of Programmes, Sky 1 HD, Sky 1, 2 & Pick TV and Director of Commissioning, Sky Entertainment said: “Customers loved this show so it’s great to commit to more. At Sky we work hard to bring our viewers high quality original entertainment made by the very best production companies with fantastic talent so I’m delighted we can confirm Mad Dogs’ return just a few weeks after the first series has finished its run. This also marks a growing investment in British scripted content, to sit alongside our great American shows.”

Andy Harries and Suzanne Mackie return to executive produce for Leftbank Pictures with James Hawes (Merlin, Doctor Who) directing scripts written again by Cris Cole.

Andy Harries commented: “Mad Dogs had such an impact that it was as obvious as a dead goat that we had to do more and all of the amazing cast felt the same.”

Suzanne Mackie added: “Before we had finished the first series of Mad Dogs we felt that there was so much more to do with these characters. I have been working with Cris Cole on the scripts ever since we finished shooting series one and the ideas for series two and three are every bit as explosive and inventive as they were at the beginning.”

At Palma Pictures we say, “roll on the action!”
