Fashion-focused new drama on BBC1

The BBC has revealed details of ‘Material Girl’, a much-anticipated new TV series that will start showing later in the year. The series will star ‘Sugar Rush’ actress Leonora Crichlow and ‘Ballykissangel’ actress Dervla Kirwan.

Set on London’s Brick Lane and based on Imogen Edwards-Jones’s novel ‘Fashion Bablyon’, the romantic comedy series tells the story of a talented young fashion designer who comes to rival a more established designer and decides she’ll do anything to make her new rival fail!

With involvement from the producers and directors of hits such as ‘Secret Diary of a Call Girl’, ‘Primeval’ and ‘Mistresses’, the show is expected to be received well by BBC fans.

The Managing Director of Carnival Film & Television, the company which is producing the show, says that viewers can expect “all the glamour and colour of the fashion world alongside warm, witty and colourful characters, and, above all, the dreams and passions of a tight-knit group of friends.”
