rise above

I MAY DESTROY YOU Starts December 4, Fridays from 8.30pm and watch all episodes now On Demand FOX SHOWCASE [112] Late one night in 2016, Michaela Coel was in her London office writing the second season of her sitcom Chewing Gum (s1-2 available On Demand) when she decided to meet a friend for a tipple. After her drink was spiked, Coel found herself back in the office with a huge gap in her memory and no recollection of the sexual assault she later discovered had taken place. The process of coming to terms with this led to her writing, co-directing and staring in the acclaimed 12-episode limited series I May Destroy You. “I’ve always yearned for transparency, so being able to talk about it and explore it through a character has helped me a lot,”…

The first episode also features famed English author George Orwell’s son Richard Blair, who ventures back to the scene of the family’s near-fatal 1947 sailing…

If I could watch television with anyone, dead or alive, it would be… I don’t know why my answer is always Oprah Winfrey. I don’t even know that Oprah wants to watch TV! The song that shaped my life is… You Don’t Know Me by Eddy Arnold, who is one of my heroes. It’s the ultimate song about unrequited love. I’ve been trying to write that song my whole life. The single that never fails to get me pumped up is… Currently it’s a song called Summer Feelings and it’s a Charlie Puth…
