HULLRAISERS: FIRST LOOK AT UPCOMING CHANNEL 4 COMEDY SERIES
Updated: Mar 29, 2022
Hullraisers celebrates female talent, both on and off screen in a laugh-out- loud, chaotic comedy that embodies the ups and downs of life, friendship, and family.
Airing this Spring on Channel 4, brand-new, hull-arious series, Hullraisers (6 x 30’) from Hull’s very own Lucy Beaumont, written by Lucy Beaumont and Anne-Marie O’Connor and produced by Fable Pictures.
The series centres on three women; Toni, played by Hull-native Leah Brotherhead, Rana, played by Taj Atwal and Paula, played by Sinead Matthews and looks at their disheveled, messy and joyful lives.
The series explores the hilarious and agonising reality of what it is to be a working-class woman juggling work, kids, demanding friends, family and frustrating parents from the school playground - all whilst trying to have some fun too.
Writer Lucy Beaumont said: “It’s an absolute privilege and honour to be working with one of the most talented and dynamic production companies in the UK, and Channel 4, who are absolutely killing it with comedy that raises the bar and pushes boundaries. I’m so excited about showing the world these true Hull characters and the city that has moulded them - a city that has kept its talent and attributes hidden for too long!”
