“We Are Lady Parts” (2021-present)
What it is: Created by Nida Manzoor for Peacock/Channel 4, this charming musical comedy follows a British punk band made up of five Muslim women. They navigate friendship, romance, and cultural differences in their all while pursuing musical success.
Why we love it: With their obvious Riot grrrl influences, naturally at least one character had to have her queer awakening, courtesy of swaggering drummer Ayesha. Playful with enough flair and distinct twists to shake up its more familiar pieces, “We are Lady Parts” is an energetic merging of aspiring artists and the fictional frame that presents them. For Lady Parts, those harmonies aren’t always tidy: They’re a punk quartet filling up any kind of rehearsal space with as much sound as the room can handle. —SG
