How many episodes are in Little Birds on Sky Atlantic?
There are six episodes in total of Little Birds on Sky Atlantic.
Each episode is an hour-long, airing from 9pm until 10pm every Tuesday evening.
The series is inspired by Anaïs Nin’s posthumously published 1979 collection of erotic short stories.
Little Birds is set in Tangier in 1955 and follows upper-class American society girl Lucy (played by Juno Temple), who is seeking a new life of freedom, far removed from the societal cage she is kept in.
The synopsis for the series reads: “We arrive there with New York heiress Lucy Savage fresh off the transatlantic steamer and ready for love and marriage in exotic climes.
“But when her husband Hugo (Skinner) does not receive her in the way she expected, she spins off into the surprising, diverse and degenerate world of Tangier in 1955.
“Period drama about an ingénue abroad this is not. Instead, Little Birds is a very modern tale of a woman losing and then finding herself down a mesmerising rabbit hole.
“What Lucy discovers is a world in flux, a country quivering on the cusp of independence, populated by a myriad of characters including a provocative dominatrix, Cherifa Lamor (Yumna Marwan) who particularly captures Lucy’s imagination.
“A bold and subversive re-invention of melodrama for our times, Little Birds takes the audience and all our characters on a witty, moving and provocative journey towards freedom and independence.”
