People watched the first episode of ‘Catastrophe’
, Delaney and Sharon Horgan’s Channel 4 series, earlier this year. The sitcom – about an Irish woman and American man who jump-start a relationship after an accidental pregnancy – was a critical hit. ‘I was so unbelievably happy,’ says Delaney about the reaction. ‘Sharon and I really bled into those scripts and every aspect of that show, so we knew if people didn’t like it they just plain didn’t like us. Generally people did like it. Which means that Sharon and I are excellent people.’ A second series is on its way, having been commissioned after just two episodes of the first season had aired.
