And following Tambay’s earlier post on Sky Arts’ Playhouse Presents . . .
. . . comes another Playhouse Presents project announced last month titled Psychobitches, which is described as “an all-star sketch show that sees some of history’s most famous women psychoanalysed, [which] has been ordered for a series, to air in 2013.” This will be the program’s second season.
Zawe Ashton and Sharon D. Clarke (Holby City, The Shadow Line) both appear in Psychobitches.
“Produced by the award-winning Tiger Aspect Productions, t)he comedy celebrates outstanding women from history and all their gloriously bonkers issues. One therapist’s room, one therapist and a waiting room full of acclaimed ladies.
Starring Rebecca Front as the therapist, the series will see the core cast play a number of women from history including Julia Davis as Sylvia Plath, Sharon Horgan as Eve, Sam Spiro as Audrey Hepburn, Frances Barber Bette Davis, Kathy Burke as Mona Lisa, and Katy Brand as Mary Shelley. It also features Tamsin Egerton, Selina Griffiths, Jo Scanlan, and Sarah Solemani.“
