BBC America's Not Going Out Returns Only Two Weeks After Season One Finale
Look for season two on Tuesday, July 8, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

[via press release from BBC America]

***SPOILER WARNING***

BBC AMERICA'S NOT GOING OUT RETURNS ONLY TWO WEEKS AFTER SEASON ONE FINALE

The Office's Sally Bretton joins top-UK comedians Lee Mack and Tim Vine for Season Two

Returning two weeks after its season finale, BBC AMERICA premieres seven new episodes of romantic sitcom Not Going Out, starring Lee Mack (The Sketch Show). Lee's roommate Kate has moved back to America and his best friend and landlord, Tim (Tim Vine, The Sketch Show), has put the apartment up for sale. Faced with the prospect of losing the apartment, Lee rents the spare room to Tim's ambitious younger sister Lucy (Sally Bretton, The Office) � a simple solution that quickly becomes complicated.

Not Going Out, season two, premieres Tuesday, July 8, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

The new living arrangement turns out to be far from perfect. While Lee can now keep his well-meaning but utterly useless housekeeper Barbara (Miranda Hart, Hyperdrive, Lead Balloon), he finds himself in a bidding war with high-rolling Lucy for the apartment. Sibling rivalry turns into full-on anxiety as uptight accountant Tim quickly becomes suspicious of Lee's influence on his kid sister. To top it all, Lee starts to seriously question the suitability of Lucy's new boyfriend Guy (Simon Dutton, The Saint, Holby City).

Still unburdened by ambition or drive � although now the proud owner of an ice-cream van � Lee finds his plans for keeping the apartment are not straight forward. On the plus side, his new domestic set-up does lead him to discover the art world, the underworld and the lengths one man will go for tickets to an England soccer game.

BBC AMERICA brings audiences a new generation of award-winning television featuring news with a uniquely global perspective, provocative dramas, razor-sharp comedies and life-changing makeovers. BBC AMERICA pushes the boundaries to deliver high quality, highly addictive and eminently watchable programming to viewers who demand more. BBC AMERICA is distributed by Discovery Networks. It is available on digital cable and satellite TV in more than 60 million homes.

EPISODE SYNOPSES

Episode Seven- Mortgage

Now that Lee's former roommate Kate has moved back to America, Tim decides to sell the apartment. Faced with homelessness, Lee announces he'll buy the apartment himself, and gets to work putting off any other prospective buyers - including Tim's sister Lucy. Things get worse when Lucy puts in an offer on the apartment and Tim is forced to decide where his loyalties lie.

Episode seven premieres Tuesday, July 8, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

Episode Eight- Gay

A misunderstanding leads Lucy to persuade Lee to pretend to be gay in order to get closer to an attractive new business acquaintance Guy. Initially resistant, Lee changes his mind when he discovers there's something in the arrangement for him � tickets to Wembley Stadium for a soccer game. Seeing through his charade, Guy decides to test Lee's sexuality by taking him to clubs.

Episode eight premieres Tuesday, July 15, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

Episode Nine- Librarian

Lee is becoming increasingly irritated by Guy's constant presence in the apartment, and his distrust of him is fuelled by the discovery that he runs a lap-dancing club. Meanwhile Tim finally seems to have found a girl who he really likes, and of whom Lucy approves. The perfect girl, until Tim finds out what she does for a living.

Episode nine premieres Tuesday, July 22, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

Episode Ten- Baby

Lucy is worried about the age gap between her and Guy, a concern that increases when Guy turns up to meet her with his grandson in tow. A family emergency means Lee and Tim are left in charge of the baby, and they prove to be less than ideal babysitters.

Episode ten premieres Tuesday, July 29, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

Episode Eleven- Art

In an effort to appear as intellectual as Lucy's friends, Lee shows off his �knowledge' of the art world, talking at great length on the subject of an unknown artist who his housekeeper Barbara has told him is the next big thing. When Lucy takes Lee's advice and invests a fortune in the artist's work, Lee is left trying to prevent Lucy from finding out the artist is a nobody and from losing her investment.

Episode eleven premieres Tuesday, August 5, 8:40 p.m. ET/PT.

Episode Twelve- Dating

As Lucy and Guy's relationship intensifies, Lee starts to feel his own lack of a girlfriend, and encouraged by Lucy and Barbara, tries speed dating. Lee meets Daisy, and in a moment of desperation asks her out. Meanwhile Tim is forced to go on a disastrous date with Barbara, in order to prove that he sees her as more than �the help', but all is not lost when they discover a mutual love.

Episode twelve premieres Friday, August 12, 9:20 p.m. ET/PT.

Episode Thirteen- Gangster

When Guy showers Lucy with expensive clothes prior to whisking her off for a mystery weekend away, Lee's suspicions of Guy are aroused once again. After some high-level surveillance he comes to the conclusion that Guy and Lucy's romantic trip is actually a front for a diamond-smuggling operation. Egged on by Barbara, Lee starts to realize that he doesn't object to Guy just because of his age, constant presence in the apartment and dubious business interests � it's also because Lee wants Lucy for himself.

Episode thirteen premieres Friday, August 19, 9:20 p.m. ET/PT.
