Series 1 - Episode 14 Previews



The Bombshell crew are still in Boston, where Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman) tanks in the Marilyn suicide scene. Rebecca’s peanut allergy, telegraphed weeks ago, thuds into the plotline, so Ivy and Karen are again vying for the lead. Eileen gets a song at last – cue Anjelica Huston in soft focus, talking her way into Kurt Weill’s September Song. And be prepared for an emetic scene in Sam’s church, where the whole cast are so moved by a gospel number that they exchange meaningful glances that move their characters forward.


The show is performed in front of an audience for the first time at a specially arranged preview, but it becomes clear that one key scene urgently needs rewriting. However, Julia and Tom's professional partnership is on the brink of collapse. Dev tries to cover his latest mistake before Karen can find out about it, and a horrifying incident leaves the cast and crew wondering if someone is trying to scupper the production.
