Channel 4 bring ‘After The Party’ to UK screens

Channel 4 is to air After The Party from Lingo Pictures…

The six-part thriller is based in Aotearoa/New Zealand and focuses on a woman who loses everything when she accuses her husband of a sex crime against her daughter’s teenage friend and no one believes her.

“After The Party attracted an average 34% share of all viewers across the series when it aired on TVNZ and received huge critical acclaim in the Aotearoa/New Zealand press. The Spinoff called it “NZ’s best TV drama in years” and The Post declared it “A solid, gripping drama worthy of your time”Channel 4

Penny Wilding played by Robyn Malcolm is a science teacher, basketball coach, environmental activist, mother and grandmother. Penny tells it like it is, whether she’s waging graffiti attacks on fishing boats, lecturing teenage boys on how porn will destroy their sex lives or laying her middle-aged body bare for life-drawing artists. Her attitude wins her few friends in her close-knit coastal town of Wellington, and Penny’s fine with that.

But five years ago, Penny’s world imploded when she accused her husband Phil played by Peter Mullan of a sex crime and nobody believed her. When Penny’s now ex-husband returns to town, her daughter pressures her to let go of her accusations and move on. As her old furies rise to the surface, Penny must decide what’s more important – the truth or rebuilding her relationships with everyone around her.

Polly Scates, Head of Acquisitions at Channel 4:
