Sooo, Desiree Akhavan, who co-writes, directs and stars in our new comedy, The Bisexual, has somehow managed to find time to put together a Spotify playlist of the tracks featured in the series. Enjoy it on your phone, or via Alexa, or via Bluetooth or, if you’re a bit more old school, make a note of it all with parchment and ink and go and buy 17 records to play, at 78 speed, on your gramophone. Tsk, grandad!
Here’s some blurb: Fresh from winning the Grand Jury prize at Sundance, Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Appropriate Behaviour) co-writes (with long-term collaborator Cecilia Frugiuele), directs and stars in The Bisexual, a new comedy drama which offers a raw, funny and unapologetic take on the “last taboo” - bisexuality - and the prejudices, shame and comic misconceptions that surround it. With Desiree’s trademark dry wit, the series takes a candid look at people’s approach to love and sex, and what the love and sex they’re drawn to reveals about them.
The Bisexual comes to Channel 4 at 10pm on October 10th. The full series is available, free to view or download, on All 4, following transmission of the first episode. The series will continue weekly on Channel 4.
