NEW YORK – MARCH 8, 2023 – The laugh-out-loud British sitcom Hullraisers, adapted from the Israeli sitcom Little Mom, is coming to IFC on Wednesday, April 5 at 11pm ET/PT, with new episodes airing weekly. The full season will be available to binge on Sundance Now and AMC+ the same day.
The series follows the lives of three working-class women living in the Yorkshire city of Hull: self-described actress and chaotic mother Toni (Leah Brotherhood, Bridgerton), her down-to-earth older sister Paula (Sinead Matthews, The Crown) and best friend, policewoman Rana (Taj Atwal, Line of Duty), as they navigate their daily lives, their chances at romance, and their dreams for the future.
The six-episode season is written by Lucy Beaumont (Meet the Richardsons), Caroline Moran (Raised by Wolves) and Anne Marie O’Connor (Trollied). Ian Fitzgibbon (Raised by Wolves) serves as director.
