ITV, TIGER ASPECT AND BRITBOX INTERNATIONAL RELEASE THE FIRST LOOK STILLS FROM SIR LENNY HENRY’S THREE LITTLE BIRDS
6x60’ SERIES IS WRITTEN AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCED BY SIR LENNY HENRY AND COMING TO SCREENS FROM THIS AUTUMN
The first look stills from Sir Lenny Henry’s Three Little Birds lead by rising stars Rochelle Neil (The Nevers, Guilt), Yazmin Belo (What Just Happened) and Saffron Coomber (Tracey Beaker Returns, Eastenders), who made their red-carpet debut at this year’s TV BAFTAs, have been released ahead of the series coming to ITV and ITVX this Autumn and BritBox International in the US, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Nordic markets in 2024. The series is produced by Tiger Aspect in association with Douglas Road.
Spirited, moving, funny and utterly heartfelt Three Little Birds is a triumphant celebration of immigration, community and the strength of Black womanhood inspired by the life-affirming stories of Sir Lenny Henry’s mother and all those who have travelled to make Britain their home.
Set in 1957, post-Windrush, and amidst the booming decade set alight by promise, the rhythm of rock and roll, swing, Hollywood starlets and fabulous fashion Three Little Birds will introduce Dudley and the rest of the world to gregarious sisters Leah (Neil) and Chantrelle (Coomber) and their virtuous, bible-loving acquaintance, Hosanna (Belo), as they board a cruise ship from Jamaica bound for a new life in Blighty.
