Hulu and Channel 4 Partner on Drama 'Queenie' Created by Candice Carty-Williams

Hulu and Channel 4 will co-produce the original drama series Queenie based on the novel by Candice Carty-Williams. The first season will produce 8 episodes.

Queenie Jenkins is a 25-year-old Jamaican British woman living in south London, straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither. After a messy breakup with her long-term boyfriend, Queenie seeks comfort in all the wrong places and begins to realize she has to face the past head-on before she can rebuild.

The drama stars Dionne Brown, Samuel Adewunmi and Bellah. 

Carty-Williams will serve as showrunner on the first season. She will executive produce with Steve November and Sarah Conroy, with Lisa Walters as a co-executive producer. Lionsgate Television, Onyx Collective and Further South Productions will produce.
