2018 UK drama Girlfriends will have its Australian premiere on Acorn TV later this month.
The 6 part series stars Phyllis Logan, Miranda Richardson & Zoë Wanamaker as three women who have been friends since their teenage years, struggling with the responsibilities that come with being a modern woman.
It also features Matthew Lewis, Anthony Head, Daisy Head, Adrian Rawlins, Emmett J Scanlon, Rochenda Sandall and Matthew Marsh.
The series is created by Kay Mellor (Love, Lies & Records) and screened in the UK two years ago.
After the dramatic and sudden death of Linda’s husband Micky, childhood friends Linda (Phyllis Logan), Sue (Miranda Richardson) and Gail (Zoë Wanamaker) find themselves back together again. Each has their own problems to face; from a looming divorce from the husband she still loves and the loss of a high-powered job through age discrimination, to juggling the endless responsibilities of their grandchildren and ageing mothers.
As widowed Linda tries to come to terms with being on her own after over 30 years of marriage, she and her girlfriends are horrified to find that this could be the least of her worries. As questions over the circumstances of Micky’s death start to be asked, accusations reveal secrets, deception and doubts that tear at our Girlfriends’ friendship. Will it endure or will it be severely put to the test?
Monday 24th February on Acorn TV.
