Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS - BY ALEX GREEN

Blessed: Katherine Ryan KATHERINE Ryan has said she feels “blessed” to be able to por­tray an un­con­ven­tional woman on screen in her Net­flix sit­com, The Duchess.

“I didn’t think I would ever be blessed with the op­por­tu­nity to write a sit­com. It’s go­ing to be cool. It’s about a fash­ion­able, dis­rup­tive type of woman, who I’ve not re­ally seen on TV be­fore,” she said, talk­ing on the red car­pet at the Women in Film and TV (WFTV) awards.

The Cana­dian comic, who pre­sented the achieve­ment of the year award at Fri­day’s event, will star in her first self-penned TV se­ries about a sin­gle mother on the stream­ing plat­form.

The Duchess will pre­miere on Net­flix in 2019.
