A new comedy series is making its way to Stan, and the first look shows it will be a colouful blast from the past.
Produced by actor and filmmaker Paul Feig, Minx will premier Thursday 17th March, the same day as the U.S and exclusive to Stan.
Joined by Guardians of the Galaxy’s Ophelia Lovibond and New Girl’s Jake Johnson, Minx offers a bold, empowering and fresh perspective on the world of erotic magazine publishing.
Set in 1970s Los Angeles, a young feminist named Joyce (Lovibond) joins forces with a low-rent publisher (Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women.
In order for Joyce to get her career on track, the two protagonists must navigate their way through the challenges, conflicts and hardships the LA porn scene throws their way.
From flares and bell sleeves to miniskirts and pinstripe jackets, Minx will take the audience back to the eclectic era of 70’s fashion while exploring the social issues of the decade.
The 10-episode comedy series boasts a cast of experienced actors, including Idara Victor (Rizzoli & Isles), Jessica Lowe (Desperados), Lennon Parham (Playing House), Michael Angarano (This Is Us) and Oscar Montoya (Final Space).
Producer Paul Feig has directed a number of 21st-century comedies, including Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy, Snatched, Bad Teacher and Ghostbusters. He also directed the black comedy-mystery film A Simple Favor and the romantic comedy film Last Christmas.
Creator and Showrunner Ellen Rapoport executive produces the series alongside Paul Feig (Stan Exclusives Love Life and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) and Dan Magnante (Stan Exclusive Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) for Feigco Entertainment, Ben Karlin and Rachel Lee Goldenberg, who also directed the pilot. Jake Johnson serves as a co-executive producer. Lionsgate Television is the studio.
