I Hate Suzie will air on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV in 2020.
What is I Hate Suzie about?
The “excruciatingly honest” eight-part series follows Suzie Pickles (Piper), a star on the wane, whose world is turned upside down after her phone is hacked and an image of her in a “compromising position” is leaked.
Exposed and devastated, Suzie attempts to hold her life, career and marriage together, and goes through all the stages of grief — Shock, Denial, Fear, Shame, Bargaining, Guilt, Anger and Acceptance — while seeking counsel from her best friend and manager Naomi.
“It’s taken years to finally get Lucy, my long-term GF and favourite writer in London – to work with me again,” Piper says of the collaboration. “We feel we’ve created something timely and not for the faint-hearted. If you too suffer with anxiety, shame, compulsive lying but like a laugh, please tune in at some point.”
