… is mixing sex with politics
SHE IS at the helm of the latest drama to hit the BBC, and is not afraid to expose the world of British politics as being just as much about sex, drugs and dishonesty as it is about hugging a hoodie and going back to basics.
Eleanor Greene, 31, is the producer of Party Animals, which hits our screens on January 31 on BBC2. The racy drama series, from the makers of This Life, watches 20-something politicos as they clamber to the top. Ms Greene tells People: “For viewers who want a really good relationship drama that has got sexual intrigue, they will be satisfied. But if you also like politics, it’s got really solid political stories.
“We developed the show from scratch,” adds the Mancunian, now living in North London. “I started with friends and family who work in politics, and Martin Bright, political editor of the New Statesman, was able to help with all other aspects of the show. “My mother always worries about the hours I work, but hopefully when she sees the show she’ll just be happy. I don’t think my parents know how much sex and drugs are in it, but when they see it, I’m sure they’ll be more proud than shocked.”
