Sky today releases a new image of Billie Piper as Suzie Pickles, for upcoming Sky Original drama, I Hate Suzie Too.
The series sees the return of child star turned actress Suzie Pickles, (Billie Piper). Suzie has a new agent, new PR and a new job – dancing for likes on ‘Dance Crazee’, a reality TV competition that has the audience hooked. Having lost everyone that matters to her, Suzie returns to her first love – the public.
In this three-part anti-Christmas, Christmas special, Suzie fights to regain the love of the British public whilst her personal life spirals out of control. Will she win their hearts / votes? And restore her reputation? And at what cost?
I Hate Suzie received multiple 5* reviews when it debuted in 2020 and will be returning to Sky Atlantic and NOW just in time for Christmas.
