Tracey Ullman is back on television with a hilarious new sketch series “Tracey Ullman’s Show.” The first trailer for the comedy, set to debut next month on HBO, has been released and features the comedian impersonating Maggie Smith, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Judi Dench keying a car and slashing the tires right in front of the owner.
The six-episode series will show Ullman portraying a wide array of everyday people and famous faces, as well as look at modern life on the British side of the pond. The first season aired earlier this year in the U.K. and has already been renewed for a second season.
In 1987 Ullman starred in her own comedy sketches series “The Tracey Ullman Show” on Fox. She then worked with HBO from 1996 to 1999 on her show “Tracey Takes On…” The actress also appeared in “Tracey Ullman’s State of the Union,” which ran from 2008 to 2010 on Showtime. Throughout her career, the Emmy Award winner has also had roles in films like “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” Woody Allen’s “Small Time Crooks,” and “Into the Woods.”
“Tracey Ullman’s Show” debuts Friday, October 28 at 11pm on HBO.
