Funny Woman

Directed by the UK’s Oliver Parker and written by British screenwriter Morwenna Banks, this entertaining series addresses the sexism of the 1960’s in a gratifying and forward-thinking way. With outstanding performances from British actors Rupert Everett, David Threlfall, Tom Bateman and Clare-Hope Ashitey, the series was co-produced by UK companies Sky Studios, Rebel Park Productions and Potboiler Television.





Barbara Parker (Gemma Arterton), a beauty queen from Blackpool, tries to find her voice in the male-dominated world of 1960s comedy. Determined to make her dream a reality, she moves to London to become a star.
