Theanarchic, joyful and irreverent comedy following a Muslim female punk band – called Lady Parts – will premiere 21 May, all episodes at once, only on Stan.

The series is written, created and directed by Nida Manzoor (Doctor Who, Enterprice, Hounslow Diaries), who has drawn on her own experiences; and takes inspiration from the rich and diverse cultural collectives and artists in London while boasting an exciting ensemble cast of new British acting talent. We Are Lady Parts shows the highs and lows of a punk band – called Lady Parts – as seen through the eyes of Amina Hussain (Anjana Vasan) – a geeky microbiology PhD student, who’s on the lookout for love and romance.

The series is packed with original punk songs and surprising cover tracks, written and adapted by Nida and her siblings Shez Manzoor, who also scored the show, Sanya Manzoor and Benni Fregin.

We Are Lady Parts is at once an unapologetically bold comedy and a joyful celebration of the richness and diversity found in contemporary London, whilst also an exploration on the fundamental questions of life: Who am I? Where and with whom do I belong? But ultimately it’s about funny women with real agency, forging their own lives and identities in a world determined to do it for them.

We Are Lady Parts was created, written and directed by Nida Manzoor. The series is produced by Working Title Television (WTTV), which is part of NBCUniversal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group. It was commissioned for Channel 4 by Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy, and Laura Riseam, Commissioning Executive. Executive Producers for WTTV are Surian Fletcher-Jones, Mark Freeland, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. The series is produced by John Pocock and distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution.

Brand new series We Are Lady Parts will premiere 21 May, all episodes at once, only on Stan – same day as the UK.
