In honor of International Women’s Day, RadioTimes put together an article of “TV shows written by women to look forward to in 2022” and it featured shows by our writers Anna Symon and Sally Wainwright!
Symon’s The Essex Serpent, which premieres later this year, was included on the list. Written by Symon and based on the book of the same name by Sarah Perry, The Essex Serpent is an upcoming period drama directed by Clio Barnard for Apple TV Plus.
Claire Danes plays the heroine Cora Seaborne, a widow who arrives at the small village of Aldwinter in Essex, and becomes intrigued by a local superstition about a mythical serpent. Loki star Tom Hiddleston joins Danes in the role of Will Ransom, a local leader and man of the cloth, while Cleménce Poésy (Tenet) will play Stella Ransom, wife of Will and close friend of Cora.
Season 2 of Sally Wainwright’s Gentleman Jack was also featured on the list. Set in the 1800s, Gentleman Jack season 2 picks up where the first left off, following the self-styled marriage of Yorkshire landowner and the “first modern lesbian” Anne Lister ( Suranne Jones) to the shy, wealthy heiress Ann Walker (played by Sophie Rundle in the Gentleman Jack cast), following a long, fraught courtship during season 1.
