This week, HBO Max is releasing a new Max Original called I Hate Suzie. They’ve released a new trailer for the series, and I think it has some potential as a drama series. It might be worth a watch. The series was created by Lucy Prebble and is directed by Georgi Banks-Davies and Anthony Neilson. Billie Piper stars as Suzie Pickles along with Leila Farzad, Daniel Ings, and Nathaniel Martello-White.
Suzie Pickles, a star on the wane, has her whole life upended when her phone is hacked and a photo of her in an extremely compromising position is released for the whole world to see. This excruciatingly honest show follows the various stages of Suzie’s trauma episode by episode, through Shock, Denial, Fear, Shame, Bargaining, Guilt, Anger and Acceptance as Suzie and her best friend and manager Naomi try to hold her life, career, and marriage together in the face of being exposed for who she truly is. But who the hell even is that?
The entire first season of I Hate Suzie will be available to watch on HBO Max starting November 19.
