DESCRIPTION:
(from Hulu's press release, November 2018) Fresh from winning the Grand Jury prize at Sundance, Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Appropriate Behavior) stars in, directs and co-writes (with Cecilia Frugiuele) The Bisexual, a six-part dramedy which offers a raw, funny, unapologetic 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 (BAFTA-nominated 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 novelist Gabe (Brian Gleeson), a neurotic 30-something dwarfed by the success of his debut novel, which has now been forgotten. Leila soon begins sleeping with men but struggles to come out as bisexual to Sadie and her gay friends. She finds an unlikely wingman in Gabe who helps her navigate a new life dating men and women. Skewering stereotypes and unpicking them The Bisexual explores the differences between dating men and women from the perspective of someone who finds herself - for the first time - doing both whilst examining the funny, painful, complexities of realizing that the one you love, and the life you need, may be two very different things.
