The Bi­sex­ual 10pm, Chan­nel 4

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Tv and Radio -

Like most things that are lucky enough to have her in them, this com­edy drama, an­other tale of sex and the city among peo­ple with no money wor­ries, ben­e­fits tremen­dously from the pres­ence of Max­ine Peake. The main fo­cus, how­ever, falls on De­siree Akha­van, who co-writes, di­rects and stars as Leila, a New Yorker in Lon­don. Leila’s in a steady re­la­tion­ship with her girl­friend Sadie (Peake), who is also her busi­ness part­ner in a fash­ion ven­ture that’s get­ting a lot of at­ten­tion. But Leila has a se­cret: she’s bi­sex­ual, and, when Sadie be­gins to make se­ri­ous noises about them get­ting mar­ried and hav­ing chil­dren, she flees the seem­ingly per­fect re­la­tion­ship and heads out to be­gin dat­ing both women and men. It doesn’t quite have the per­sonal vibe of some­thing like Fleabag. But it does have Max­ine Peake.
