‘Fleabag’ Fans Will Love Netflix’s New Comedy Drama ‘The Duchess’

‘Fleabag’ Fans Will Love Netflix’s New Comedy Drama ‘The Duchess’

Katherine Ryan is one of the hottest names in comedy, and if you love her controversial, relatable and sassy style of humour you're going to adore her debut foray into drama.

Written, starring and executive produced by the 37-year-old Canadian comedian, The Duchess is loosely based on the funnywoman's own life.

Told over six-parts, the upcoming Netflix comedy drama follows Katherine (Katherine Ryan), a chaotic and melodramatic single mother living in London with her daughter Olive.

Tackling the struggles of motherhood while craving another child while she still can, Katherine sets out to look for a suitable sperm donor, considering both her new boyfriend and the local sperm bank.

Unable to find one, she decides to make a deal with her ex boyfriend and Olive's father - a failed boyband member who she positively despises.

You could think of it a bit like Fleabag but with parenting. You'll see what we mean when you watch the trailer here:

Netflix says: "The Duchess, following the powerful and problematic choices of a fashionably disruptive single mom living in London. Her daughter, Olive, is her greatest love so she debates a second child with her greatest enemy -- Olive's dad. Can two wrongs make another right?"

The Duchess stars Steen Raskopoulos as Katherine's boyfriend, Rory Keenan as her ex, Michelle De Swarte as her best friend, and Kate Byrne as Katherine's daughter Olive.

Katherine Ryan - who has a 10-year-old daughter named Violet from her first marriage - has spoke about how her new show is loosely based on her own life.

She told RadioTimes.com: "The Duchess is super authentic I think to my personality, to my stage persona, because it's a disruptive mum who's a bad person but a good mum. She's fashionable, she loves being a mother she's not sad about it-it's me, yes."

"The rest is fiction, but it is a heightened version of me, and I'm really lucky because they're just letting me go and write the real thing that I would have wanted to, and I don't think I would have been as lucky with a traditional network, I don't think they would give me the same liberty that Netflix does. It's gonna be fun."

The Duchess hits Netflix on 11th September and personally, we think it's got binge-watch written ALL over it.
