History |

It turns out that behind every great TV show, is an even greater woman. In honour of Women’s History Month, we celebrate the best TV shows written and created by kick-ass female creatives. From everyone’s new Amazon prime favourite, The Bold Type, to British gems like Chewing Gum and Fleabag, here are the shows you didn’t know were written by women.

The Bold Type

Created by: Sarah Watson

First aired in: 2017

Channel: Freeform/Amazon Prime

New journalism drama The Bold Type has been all everyone's talking about since it hit Amazon Prime last month. The series centres around three budding journalists who work at a New York-based glossy magazine called Scarlet. Jane (Katie Stevens), Kat (Aisha Dee) and Sutton (Meghann Fahy), a tight group of colleagues /BFFs are the protagonists. We watch them motivate and empower one another as they aim to make their way from assistants to big shot writers and editors. The show, created by rising TV writer, Sarah Watson, couldn’t feel more timely following the pro-female movements in Hollywood right now.
