Channel 4 has released a number of first look images from their upcoming comedy series Big Mood starring Nicola Coughlan and Lydia West.
Written and created by Camilla Whitehill, Big Mood is described as a vivacious and rebellious portrayal of female friendship when infiltrated by the complexities of a serious mental illness.
The six-part series will launch on Channel 4 in 2024 and stars Nicola Coughlan and Lydia West as best friends Maggie and Eddie who have lived in each other’s pockets for ten years, through thick, thin, and multiple challenging eyebrow trends.
But with the rest of their lives looming, careers hanging in the balance, and Maggie’s bipolar disorder making an unwelcome return to form, Eddie begins to question whether this friendship is really in their best interests.
It's a pivotal point in both their lives, bringing to the surface those all-important questions... Could sleeping with your former History teacher be the key to happiness? Is a basement Rat Hotel a functional alternative to pest control? With their twenties behind them, Maggie and Eddie’s relationship faces the future, can it survive?
