ZoŽ to star in Kay Mellor's 'exciting new series' Girlfriends for ITV

11 May 2017 16:47

Details of the new drama mentioned in ZoŽ's recent interview with the Sunday Telegraph have now been revealed. According to the ITV Press Centre, ZoŽ will star in six-part series Girlfriends alongside Miranda Richardson and Phyllis Logan.

Written by the hugely successful Kay Mellor, Girlfriends will see ZoŽ play Gail, one of a trio of childhood friends dealing with a tragic death while 'struggl[ing] with the responsibilities that come with being a modern woman of a certain age'.

Speaking about Girlfriends, ZoŽ says, 'I'm looking forward to working on this exciting new series with such a stellar cast. I have long been a fan of Kay's work and am relishing the opportunity to work alongside Miranda and Phyllis.'

As Mellor emphasises, the programme aims to give 'women of a certain age who feel like they are invisible and unheard [...] a voice' while treating viewers to 'a big, bold, dark story [...] shot through with humour'.

It sounds fantastic, and I'm thrilled that ZoŽ will be working again with Richardson after their brilliant performances in the quirky campsite comedy-drama Ball Trap on the CŰte Sauvage (1989).

Girlfriends will begin filming in June and air on TV in 2018.
