Claire King / Drifters

Claire King will be playing a guest lead in Season 2 of 'Drifters' on E4.

Drifters, the original comedy series from writer-performer Jessica Knappett about three best friends trying - and largely failing - to figure out love and life in Leeds, will return for a second series for E4.

Claire will be playing Cath, who is Laura's Mum (Laura: played by Lauren O'Rourke) Cath is basically Laura to the power of ten. We first see her swigging from a can of lager with a fag in hand. Forthright and loud she hasn't quite got the tone of Laura's hen night right: she thinks elegant equates a plastic tiara. She likes a fag and a dirty joke, full on full steam no stopping her!

C4 Comedy Commissioning Editor, Rachel Springett, said: "We are delighted to be bringing back Meg, Bunny and Laura for a second run of Drifters after a glorious first series. We look forward to seeing what humiliating, life affirming and troublesome moments Jessica Knappett has in store for the girls this time around."

The new series of 6 x 30’ eps will see hapless Meg, her daydreamer cousin Bunny (Lydia Rose Bewley) and no nonsense Leeds lass Laura (Lauren O’Rourke) face more hilariously humiliating encounters as their Gap Year starts to drift into its third year. Expect more drunken mischief, dodgy relationships and embarrassing jobs as the girls continue to “embellish” their fantastical CVs.

The director is Tom Marshall (London Irish). Executive Producers are Damon Beesley, Iain Morris and Simon Wilson and the series will be produced by Sam Pinnell. The second series of Drifters was recommissioned by E4 by Comedy Commissioning Editor Rachel Springett. Bwark Productions is the production company behind E4's multi-award winning series and film, The Inbetweeners, and is a Zodiak Media Company.

Claire's episode is due to go on 4OD on 13th November and then on E4 on the 20th November.
