Web drama series about single black girl living in London looking for love coming to UK TV screens
Sky Living is set to premiere a new drama Venus Vs Mars. It follows dynamic single girl Venus in her catastrophic quest to find true love, in a warm and witty comedy drama from critically acclaimed playwright Baby Isako (Love is a Losing Game, Bag Ladies).
Developed from a hugely popular web series and set in London, the 10-part comedy drama follows hapless romantic Venus, played by rising star Letitia Hector, as she hunts for Mr Right. Run-ins with the ex, old flames, new crushes and double dates mean there’s never a dull moment in Venus’s love life, while her friends also contend with man dramas and relationship woes. It sounds like we may be getting our very own UK version of ‘Being Mary Jane’.
We can’t even remember the last time (if ever) there was a British drama with a black female lead based on the life of a woman of colour, so you can guess that we’re pretty excited.
Venus Vs Mars starts on Sky Living on the 9th of April, Thursdays at 11pm, with two episodes screening each night.
