SUNDANCE TV AND BBC ONE GREENLIGHT SECOND SEASON OF DRAMA SERIES "THE SPLIT"

The Series is From BAFTA and Emmy(R) Award-Winning Screenwriter Abi Morgan and Produced by Jane Featherstone's Sister Pictures

NEW YORK - May 30, 2018 - SundanceTV and BBC One announced today that Abi Morgan's original drama "The Split," produced by Sister Pictures, will return for a second season. Season one premiered on SundanceTV on May 23rd to critical acclaim, having been called a "powerful drama" by The Wall Street Journal and "an addictive guilty pleasure" by TV Guide.

"The Split" is an authentic, layered exploration of modern marriage and the legacy of divorce through the lens of the Defoes - a family of female lawyers at the heart of London's fast-paced and emotionally charged divorce circuit.

The series stars Nicola Walker ("River," "Last Tango in Halifax"), Meera Syal ("Goodness Gracious Me"), Stephen Mangan ("Episodes"), Fiona Button ("Lip Service"), Deborah Findlay (Leaving), Annabel Scholey (Being Human), Anthony Head ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Barry Atsma (Hector and The Search For Happiness) and Stephen Tompkinson ("DCI Banks").

On the show's return Abi Morgan said: "It's a delight and a privilege to bring 'The Split' back for series two and to submerge myself once more into the world of Noble, Hale and Defoe and the lives of Hannah and her sisters. Thank you to the BBC, Sundance and the enthusiasm of viewers and we look forward to seeing you in 2019."

Jane Featherstone, Executive Producer for Sister Pictures, said: "I've been very proud to see Nicola Walker leading our incredible cast through six episodes of Abi Morgan's beautifully crafted exploration of families and modern marriage, and I am thrilled that we're going to be able to continue to explore their lives in even more detail in a second series. Expect things to get even messier for the Defoe sisters and those closest to them."

"'The Split' has been an emotional, compelling drama that SundanceTV has been proud to be a part of," said Jan Diedrichsen General Manager SundanceTV and Sundance Now. "Abi and Jane created a wonderful series that we're excited to bring back for a second season, and we can't wait to get a deeper look into the complicated lives of the Defoes and the high-stakes world of divorce law."

Created and written by Abi Morgan, "The Split" was produced by Sister Pictures for BBC One, co-produced with SundanceTV, and has been recommissioned by Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, and Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content. Season one was executive produced by Sister Pictures Founder Jane Featherstone ("Broadchurch," "Humans," "River"), creator Abi Morgan ("River," Suffragette, "The Hour") director Jessica Hobbs ("Broadchurch," "Apple Tree Yard," "The Slap") and Lucy Richer for the BBC, with Lucy Dyke ("Black Mirror," "Ripper Street") producing.
