New Punk Rock Comedy Celebrates Diversity In Contemporary London
The series has been written, created and directed by Nida Manzoor who has taken from her own experiences in contemporary London, celebrating the diversity she sees around her. The series will feature original punk songs and covers, written and adapted by Manzoor and her siblings Shez Manzoor and Sanya Manzoor, along with Benni Fregin.
The network’s description reads, “We Are Lady Parts shows the highs and lows of the band – Lady Parts – as seen through the eyes of Amina Hussain (Anjana Vasan)– a geeky microbiology PhD student who’s on the lookout for love and is recruited to be their unlikely lead guitarist.
“Lady Parts’ fierce and enigmatic front-woman Saira (Sarah Kameela Impey) sees something in Amina. However, the other members – taxi-driving drummer Ayesha (Juliette Motamed), cartoon-drawing bassist and backing vocalist Bisma (Faith Omole) and the band’s wheeler-dealer band manager Momtaz (Lucie Shorthouse)– are not convinced she is right for their band.
Amina has never met girls like this before, and she’s soon swept up in their joyful, anarchic energy and punk spirit. But she becomes torn and caught up between two different worlds – that of her more strait-laced university friends led by her bestie Noor (Aiysha Hart) and the world of Lady Parts. Will she be the key to the band’s success? And – will she finally find a husband?”
No official date has been set for We Are Lady Parts with the network simply stating ‘soon’.
Stay tuned for We Are Lady Parts coming soon to Channel Four, Peacock and Stan

Everyone should have a soundtrack playing loudly in the background of their life. I was born moshing to my own beat and have never swayed from my love of music. Spreading my passion through the written word is my soul’s purpose. My punk heart beats loudly with the rhythm of my rock soul. I plan to continue to mosh like no one gives a shit.
