Julia | Preview (Sky Atlantic)

Happy Valley star Sarah Lancashire stars in new HBO Max and Sky biographical series telling the story of Julia Child.



Sarah transforms into American cooking icon Julia Child for a new eight-part biographical TV series from the producer of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel which tells the story of how Child revolutionised both the kitchen and television in the early 1960s.


Julia is inspired by Julia Child's extraordinary life and her long-running television series The French Chef, which premiered in 1963 and which pioneered the now popular genre of cooking shows.



Through Julia and her singular can-do spirit, the series explores an evolving time in American history - the emergence of public TV as a new social institution, feminism and the women's movement, the nature of celebrity and America's cultural growth.

At its heart, this “dramedy” series is a portrait of a loving marriage with an evolving and complicated power dynamic.


Julia airs Tuesday 12th April on Sky Atlantic.
