Billie Piper to star in new Sky Original Drama - 'I Hate Suzie'
Billie Piper hs producing and starring in a new Sky Atlantic drama - I Hate Suzie. The eight part series is being written by Lucy Prebble tells the story of a star on the wane.
Piper will play Suzie Pickles who finds her life and career upended when her phone is hacked and a photo leaks of her in an extremely compromising position.
The "excruciatingly honest" show reveals her unmasking and its trauma episode by episode, through the stages of Shock, Denial, Fear, Shame, Bargaining, Guilt, Anger and Acceptance as Suzie and her best friend and manager Naomi try to hold her life, career and marriage together in the face of being exposed for who she truly is. But who the hell is that?
Billie Piper said “It’s taken years to finally get Lucy, my long-term GF and favourite writer in London - to work with me again. We feel we’ve created something timely and not for the faint-hearted. If you too suffer with anxiety, shame, compulsive lying but like a laugh, please tune in at some point.”
Lucy Prebble added “At last I get to make my best friend BIllie Piper do terrible things on screen again. It is all I live for.”
I Hate Suzie is being developed by Bad Wolf. Julie Gardner, who worked with Piper on Doctor Who said “Jane Tranter and I loved travelling time and space with Billie as the original ‘Bad Wolf’ - and know that her talent and fearlessness will make I Hate Suzie very special. Lucy Prebble’s blistering and provocative scripts take Suzie on a raw, rollercoaster ride full of upheaval and self-discovery. We can’t wait to get started!”
I Hate Suzie will air on Sky Atlantic and Now TV in 2020.
