Due to air next year, the as-yet-untitled films “explore the experience of three women in moments that are emotionally raw, thought-provoking and utterly personal” according to Channel 4, with “themes including relationships, identity and empowerment”.

Series producer Krishnendu Majumdar said: “Dominic Savage’s work always speaks to the most contemporary and urgent of questions, taking a scalpel to modern life.”
