Reading time: 1 mins
Mae Martin will play a version of herself in Netflix’s new comedy series, Feel Good.
The sitcom follows Mae, a rising talent on the stand-up circuit and recovering addict whose addictive behaviours and intense romanticism dominate every single part of her life. When she meets pragmatic – but so far heterosexual – George (Charlotte Ritchie) she’s smitten, and, much to her surprise, George feels the same. They embark on an intoxicating romance as Mae juggles relationships with her parents, fellow addicts in a drugs support group, her colleagues at the local comedy club, and tries to transform her relationship with George from an addictive one to a healthy one.
But the real question is can Mae replace a toxic addiction to love with love itself? A personal story of two young people trying to form a meaningful connection in the modern-day landscape of love, addiction and sexuality, Feel Good co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Sophie Thompson.
Written and created by Mae Martin and Joe Hampson, it’s directed by Ally Pankiw and produced by Kelly McGolpin, with Ben Farrell, Ally Pankiw, Hannah Mackay and Toby Stevens on board as exec-producers.
The series premieres on 19th March. Here’s the trailer:
