British-based comedian Katherine Ryan signed a deal with Netflix in 2018 for two projects: stand-up special Glitter Room and comedy series The Duchess. Nearly two years later, the latter will premiere on September 11.
Co-produced by Clerkenwell Films, the producer behind BAFTA-winning Channel 4/Netflix hit The End Of The F***ing World, The Duchess follows the problematic choices of a fashionably disruptive single mom living in London.
Her daughter, Olive, is her greatest love so she debates a second child with her greatest enemy — Olive’s dad. Can two wrongs make another right?
Ryan created, wrote and executive produces the six-part series. The other executive producers are Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman for 3Arts, alongside Murray Ferguson, Petra Fried, and Ed Macdonald for Clerkenwell.
