Channel 4 has released the trailer for The Bisexual, which is set to premiere on Wednesday October 10th.
The Bisexual explores the difference between dating men and women from the perspective of a person who finds herself doing both. It follows follows New Yorker Leila, who is feeling lost in London. Recently part of an uber-cool power couple, she’s now split from girlfriend Sadie and is struggling to adjust. Moving in with a ‘stranger off the internet’ she soon discovers she’s swapped her luxe old life for a house-share with Gabe.
He doesn’t know any lesbians and Leila’s not got too much experience of hanging out with heterosexuals – their worlds collide in deeply awkward and revealing ways as he becomes her unlikely wingman and helps her to navigate her new life dating men. The comedy drama, which was created by Desiree Akhavan and has an order for six episodes, is being produced by Hootenanny – a Sister Pictures company – and stars Desiree Akhavan, Maxine Peake, Brian Gleeson, Eva Birthistle, Saskia Chana and Michelle Guillot. Naomi de Pear is the executive producer. It was commissioned by Deputy Head of Comedy Nery’s Evans and Phil Clarke, Acting Head of Drama & Head of Comedy for Channel 4. Hulu co-produces for the U.S. market. International distributor All3Media International has sold The Bisexual to the Canal+ Group in France, Sky in New Zealand and streaming service Stan in Australia.
