Bisexual, The

6 x 30 mins

Produced by Hootenanny - a Sister Pictures company - for Channel 4, UK and Hulu in the USA

An unexpected take on the last taboo.

Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Appropriate Behavior) cowrites, directs and stars in The Bisexual, a comedy-drama which offers an honest, funny take on bisexuality and the comic misconceptions surrounding it.

New Yorker Leila (Akhavan) goes on a ‘break’ from her long-term girlfriend and business partner Sadie (Maxine Peake). Moving out of
their flat but still forced to see her ex every day at their joint tech company, Leila rents a room from neurotic once-successful novelist
Gabe (Brian Gleeson).

The Bisexual explores the differences between dating men and women from the perspective of Leila who finds herself – for the
first time – doing both whilst examining the funny, painful, complexities of realising that the one you love, and the life you need, may
be two very different things.
