I'm especially pumped to be co-writing Mae and George with my best friend Joe Hampson. He has such an incredible head of hair. We are excited to make a show that is both funny and sad, like our lives, and I hope they've factored therapy into the budget because I'm already hanging by a thread."

Fiona McDermott, Head of Comedy at Channel 4, says: "We're so thrilled to back Mae on this project. Her comic voice fantastically captures the inelegancies of being young, now.
