The Bisexual

A nuanced, astute and wonderfully-provocative series that perfectly showcases creator Desiree Akhavan’s brand of awkward comedy. The Bisexual - commissioned and produced by Channel 4 - will delight fans of Pure and This Way Up. Starring the UK’s Maxine Peake, Naomi Ackie, Brian Gleeson and Niamh Algar, alongside Akhavan, this is the very definition of a hidden gem.
