|...and series could move to BBC One
|The BBC has just ordered a third series of hit sitcom Miranda – which could transfer to BBC One.
Industry website Broadcast reports that BBC One controller Danny Cohen is keen to poach the show, as there are few mainstream comedies on his channel.
The second series which has just finished averaged 3.2 million viewers and peaked at 4.3million – an excellent showing for BBC Two – while winning plaudits for its broad appeal.
However, star Miranda Hart has said it’s ‘very hard, very stressful and very lonely’ writing the series.
A BBC spokeswoman said: ‘We are delighted that Miranda will be continuing to create fabulous comedy for the BBC and as yet there have not been detailed discussions about which channel she may appear on.’
