Airdate: Ladies in Black

The women from Goodes Department Store fling open their shop doors to the fabulous 60’s in a new ABC series.

Period department store drama series Ladies in Black, will premiere on ABC in June.

Following on from the 2018 film of the same name and drawing inspiration from the 1993 novel, the six part series takes place six months after the events of the original story, where amidst this backdrop of major societal shifts, the women embracing more freedom and independence are forced to confront personal choices and challenges which cast shadows over their once cherished dreams.

The TV cast includes Debi Mazar (Younger, Entourage), Miranda Otto (The Clearing, Talk To Me), Jessica De Gouw (The Drover’s Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson, The Secret She Keeps) and introducing Clare Hughes and Azizi Donnelly.

Gracie Otto (The Artful Dodger, The Clearing, Heartbreak High) says, : “Ladies in Black is set at a time when my mother was a young woman. It’s interesting for today’s younger generation to imagine how few rights women had back then. It really was not that long ago. It’s great to explore that era but it’s also an amazing, fun world of fashion and friendships.”
