Yesterday saw the launch of the new BBC Three comedy Hounslow Diaries – recently lauded as part of a new wave of bold female-driven drama being commissioned across the UK in a recent article in the Guardian.
Written by Ambreen Razia (who also stars as lead character Shadeeba) and directed by acclaimed director Nida Manzoor, Hounslow Diaries draws on Razia’s experiences as a muslim girl growing up in West London, with the pilot featuring Production Design by Ashling Johnson.
Also praised is the Northern Irish comedy series Derry Girls – the first season of which was shot by director of photography Oli Russell. The brainchild of writer Lisa McGee whose earlier work includes London Irish, Derry Girls‘ fresh humour and setting was a runaway success when it aired earlier this year.
Cited as a trailblazer in her field as both a writer and actor, Phoebe Waller Bridge’ take on the spy genre – Killing Eve – starring Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer proved immensley popular both in the UK and in the US. Season Two recently wrapped shooting, as shot by Director of Photography Damian Bromley.
