Tracey is back!

Time to make another blog post, and not just to wish Tracey a happy birthday, either. She’s got a new series starting up on January 10 or 11 called Tracey Ullman’s Show. But this one will be different in that it’s airing first on the BBC (HBO will be airing it later) and will feature British subjects and themes. But from the information and the previews I’ve seen, it’s going to look very familiar. Now which show will this new series be most like? Undoubtedly there will be elements that are reminiscent of the original Tracey Ullman Show (the Fox series from the ’80s), while other elements will remind us of Tracey Takes On… (the HBO series from the ’90s). And since we know she’ll be portraying real people such as Dame Judi Dench and Angela Merkel, we also know it will be somewhat like State of the Union (the Showtime series from the ’00s).
