The Duchess films for Netflix with Katherine Ryan
Writer/actor/producer Katherine Ryan has begun filming The Duchess for Netflix.
Ryan has written the 6 x 30 comedy; she also executive produces alongside Murray Ferguson, Petra Fried and Ed Macdonald for Clerkenwell Films and Dave Becky and Josh Liberman for 3Arts.
The Duchess marks Ryan’s debut scripted series and centres on a fashionable disruptive single mother living in London.
The Canadian comedian also recently performed her second Netflix original stand-up special, Glitter Room, which launched on the streaming platform this summer.
Filming on The Duchess will run for two months; Production Intelligence subscribers can log in for more details including the key UK production hires.
Clerkenwell Films wrapped earlier this year on two other scripted projects – BBC One daytime drama The Mallorca Files and The End of the F*****g World 2, for Channel 4 and Netflix.
