The six-part series is the highly-anticipated TV adaptation of Nicôle Lecky's critically acclaimed Royal Court play.
Superhoe from actor, writer and singer-songwriter Nicôle Lecky is a ground-breaking new drama for BBC Three with a killer original soundtrack performed by Lecky.
Told in part through the songs that Sasha creates, Superhoe follows Sasha, a 25-year-old wannabe singer and rapper. Sasha wants to be a major recording artist, but right now she’s a bedroom artist: spending her days smoking weed and stalking her ex-boyfriend on Instagram, and avoiding her mum, her step-dad and sister Megan.
When she is kicked out of her family home, Sasha is forced to fend for herself, sofa-surfing with local dealer Saleem, until she moves in with party girl Carly, who introduces her to the exciting world of social media influencing. But as the gap between her online presence and her dream of being a singer continues to grow, Sasha finds herself struggling to escape a world that is more complex and darker than she could have imagined.
Alongside Lecky starring in the leading role of Sasha Clayton, the cast includes Lara Peake as party girl Carly, Jessica Hynes as Sasha's mum, Paul Kaye as Sasha's step-dad, Mia Jenkins as Sasha's sister Megan and Jordan Duvigneau as Sasha's ex-boyfriend.
Superhoe also stars Flo Wilson, Jordan Myrie, Jason York, Chantelle Alle, Ebony Aboagye and Mohammad Dalmar in his first TV role as local dealer Saleem.
Speaking about the upcoming drama, Nicôle Lecky said "Superhoe started as a one-woman play and I had such a joy creating the world and performing these characters. Working with Shaheen Baig and the team to bring them to life on screen has been a dream. I cannot wait for everyone to see our super talented cast and live every moment with Sasha and them.”
Senior Commissioning Editor for Drama, Lucy Richer said "We’re beyond thrilled about Superhoe. Nicôle is a creative genius and she blazes onto screen as Sasha in a ground-breaking original drama we couldn’t be more proud of."
To which Margery Bone, Executive Producer for Bonafide added "Ever since I first read the stage play this has been the most incredible journey to go on with the amazing talent that is Nicôle Lecky, along with all our fantastic team who have brought this show together so brilliantly."
Superhoe will air on BBC Three
