Plot Synopsis

TRACEY ULLMAN'S SHOW is a half-hour sketch comedy series featuring Tracey Ullman, who stars as a wide array of everyday people and famous faces, while looking at modern life on the British side of the pond. Over the course of the six-episode first season, Ullman plays celebrities like Dame Judi Dench, German chancellor Angela Merkel, and Dame Maggie Smith, as well as portraying everyone from an ex-dictator's wife and an agent for fashion models to a drama teacher and an accident-prone massage therapist. On Friday, October 28, 2016 at 11pm ET/PT, HBO aired the U.S. premiere of TRACEY ULLMAN'S SHOW nearly eight months after the series was renewed for a second season on March 5, 2016.
Season 2 of TRACEY ULLMAN'S SHOW premiered on Friday, October 20, 2017 at 11pm ET/PT on HBO. Over the course of the new season, Ullman uses her signature brand of sharp satire to shape-shift into a range of public figures and offbeat original characters. She reprises her characterizations of Dame Judi Dench, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Dame Maggie Smith and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and introduces her takes on model and new Murdoch family member Jerry Hall and pop singer Adele. In the first two episodes of the new season:

Friday, October 20, 2017: Delinquent Dame Judi Dench relies on her "national treasure" status to get her out of trouble; overachieving BBC broadcaster Clare Balding can't keep herself off-camera; dinner gets dramatic at the Murdoch family home; German Chancellor Angela Merkel sings a heartfelt song to express her loneliness; Doctor Peluzzi practices outside the law when prescribing "medication" for a patient; and Scottish politician Nicola Sturgeon kidnaps a famous British author in service of Scotland. Guest stars include Ben Miller (Rupert Murdoch), Samantha Spiro (Birgit), Colin Salmon (Patricia's date) and Ricky Champ (police constable).

Friday, October 27, 2017: Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, makes unexpected purchases; a news anchor brings her cats to work; Kay and her elderly mother get caught in a flood, but refuse to leave their home; Dame Maggie Smith starts a YouTube channel; and "Northern Powerhouse" Pam Garrity is less than thrilled when she meets her son's fiance. Meanwhile, urban planners enter into a rap battle about the pros and cons of gentrification; feminist icon Germaine Greer rants at a bus stop; and a Murdoch family movie night gets uncomfortable for the kids. Guest stars include Ben Miller (Rupert Murdoch), Kevin Bishop (Larry Garrity), Ben Ashenden (Tom), Joan Linder (Kay's mother), Jaygann Ayeh (Hassan) and Kadeem Ramsay (Nonso).
