Max Vento as Joe Hughes in SundanceTV’s “The A Word”
The second season of SundanceTV’s critically-acclaimed international drama series “The A Word,” will premiere on Wednesday, November 8th at 10/9c.
After receiving rave reviews in both the U.K. and U.S., the story picks up two years from the end of season one, and Joe (Max Vento) is changing. Now age seven, he has begun to look at the world and finds he doesn’t always fit in. The six-part drama revisits the funny, messy, mixed-up lives of the Hughes and Scott families as they struggle to do their best as parents, caregivers, lovers . . . and to work out what’s really important in the face of nothing ever feeling normal. The family drama stars Christopher Eccleston (“The Leftovers”) as Joe’s grandfather Maurice; Morven Christie (“Grantchester”) and Lee Ingleby (“Our Zoo”) as Joe’s parents, Alison and Paul; and Joe’s uncle and aunt, Eddie and Nicola, played by Greg McHugh (“Fresh Meat”) and Vinette Robinson (“Sherlock”).
The English language version is based on the Israeli Keshet Broadcasting and July August Productions drama “Yellow Peppers,” created and written by Keren Margalit, who is also executive producer on the UK series.
