FROM Sharon Horgan
Creators and Stars of 'Catastrophe' American comedian Rob Delaney and Irish writer and actress Sharon Horgan created and star in the British sitcom Catastrophe. In the show, they play Rob and Sharon, an American man and Irish woman who meet in a bar while Rob's on a business trip to London. They have what both expect to be the briefest of flings. But when Sharon finds out she's pregnant, Rob returns to the UK -- initially just to help her through the pregnancy. But of course, it doesn't end there. Charming and profane, Catastrophe drew raves on UK's Channel 4, which co-produced it with Amazon Studios . Now in its second season, Catastrophe jumps ahead, with Rob and Sharon -- now parents -- still trying to navigate their relationship. When Horgan and Delaney were back in the US briefly, they spoke to The Business contributor Michael Schneider, and explained that despite their surprise success with season one, there was still some serious anxiety about season two.
