Ground-breaking Girlfriends featured on ITV News at Ten

19 December 2017 02:55

Wow, Girlfriendsí status as a ground-breaking TV drama was cemented yesterday when it was featured on ITV News at Ten. The report by arts editor Nina Nannar emphasises that by focusing on women in late middle age, the series sheds light on challenges faced by a group of people who often feel overlooked by British TV.

As Girlfriendsí creator Kay Mellor explains, ĎI wanted to say something about real women that are of a certain age and say ĎĎthis is their livesíí.í Women who are looking after their grandchildren and elderly relatives, for example, while juggling all sorts of other responsibilities are likely to identify closely with ZoŽís Gail and her best friends.

Mellor hints at the power of ZoŽís performance, as well as those of her co-stars Phyllis Logan and Miranda Richardson, in The Sunís TV guide: ĎIíve got three fabulous actresses, they're like dynamite together.í

Catch Girlfriends, which promises to be emotive and authentic, on 3 January (ITV1, 9pm) in the UK and 29 January in the US (Acorn TV).
