UKTV will screen her latest TV project, The Life & Times of Vivienne Vyle. Saunders plays a relentless TV chat show host.
The BBC described the show as “Ab Fab meets The Larry Sanders Show with quite a bit of Ricki Lake and Oprah thrown in.” That covers everyone. Six eps aired from October last year and a second is to be made.
Inspired by Jerry Springer and trashy talk shows Vyle’s subject matter includes shows about “Vivienne, I Can’t Stop Googling Myself”, “We’re Conjoined Twins and We’re At Each Other’s Throats!!” and “He’s Not Your Lover, He’s Your Dad.”
Miranda Richardson plays the show’s producer. Saunders’ character is also married to a gay man while her PR advisor is a transsexual played by Christopher Ryan.
Sounds like fun! It airs 9pm Monday July 28 on UKTV.
