We Are Lady Parts is a wild-looking new musical comedy series from Nida Manzoor, who’s probably best known for her work on Doctor Who.
We’ll let the promotional machine tell you more: “We Are Lady Parts shows the highs and lows of the band Lady Parts, as seen through the eyes of Amina Hussain – a geeky microbiology PhD student, who’s on the lookout for love and is recruited to be their unlikely lead guitarist. Lady Parts’ fierce and enigmatic frontwoman Saira sees something in Amina. However, the other members – taxi-driving drummer Ayesha, cartoon-drawing bassist and backing vocalist Bisma and the band’s wheeler-dealer band manager Momtaz – are not convinced she’s right for their band. Amina has never met girls like this before, and she’s soon swept up in their joyful, anarchic energy and punk spirit. But she becomes torn and caught up between two different worlds – that of her more strait-laced university friends led by her bestie Noor and the world of Lady Parts. Will she be the key to the band’s success? And – will she finally find a husband?”
We Are Lady Parts stars Anjana Vasan, Sarah Kameela Impey, Juliette Motamed, Faith Omole, Lucie Shorthouse, Zaqi Ismail and Aiysha Hart.
A brief trailer – conveniently located just below this paragraph – indicates that this intends to pull no taboo punches, plus it looks like a whole lot of fun. We’ll find out for sure when it debuts soon…
