Women with big ball point pens!

I have a great respect for TV & film’s male writers, directors and producers, but it’s always pretty cool when a bus-load of talented women shake up the male/female balance. I love to read the credits after a viewing experience has wowed me and most recently it’s been some epic ladies dominating the list. I’ve just finished gulping down the first series of The OA on Netflix and, although it’s left me with some timeline anomalies, I can honestly say I’ve never seen anything quite so unique. No spoiler alerts, just kudos to the incredible casting, acting and all round ground-breaking viewer experience. Brit Marling is conceptual, incredibly creative and very cool!  Flying the Brit flag for amazing drama over here – Fleabag, from the one and only Phoebe Waller-Bridge. She’s another mega writer, actor – everything! She can fuse terrible sadness with extreme hilarity in the exact same moment a bit like Ricky Gervais’, Afterlife. And finally, Lena Dunham – creator, writer, director, executive, fire-fighter (well she might as well be) of HBO’s Girls and another all-singing, all-doing woman. Exciting times ahead for all of them, I’m sure.
