Dominic Savage’s female-fronted anthology series I Am has been recommissioned by Channel 4 for a new three-part series.
Each episode will be written and developed by Dominic Savage, in collaboration with the lead actor of the episode, which will have a personal connection to them.
The series will explore mental health, relationships and trust, through a contemporary female lens.
Produced by Me + You Productions, Suranne Jones and Ashley Walters have been confirmed to star in I Am Victoria, with further casting to be announced.
Suranne Jones commented: “Dominic always tells important stories with great sensitivity and the process so far has been wonderfully collaborative and open which is something I thrive on.
“I can’t wait to make what will be a very personal and thought-provoking piece and I’m thrilled to be telling this story with Ashley.
“I hope it really speaks to people and helps continue the important discussions around mental health.”
The first series of I Am was nominated for an RTS Craft Award for Photography in the Drama and Comedy category in 2019.
Dominic Savage expressed his excitement at making another series of “female-led stories”.
He added: “It is a privilege to be telling such personal and important stories in this unique and collaborative way.
“These will be inspirational, relatable, and truthful tales of courage and hope, that shine a light on the difficult and challenging aspects of all of our lives.”
