Created, written, and directed by Nida Manzoor, the first series explored the trials and tribulations of the female punk rock band Lady Parts through the eyes of the geeky microbiology PhD student Amina Hussain (Anjana Vasan). Desperately seeking a husband, Amina is recruited to become the band’s unlikely lead guitarist by their enigmatic frontwoman Saira (Sarah Kameela Impey), who uses her hunt for love as leverage. As she quickly becomes swept up in the joyful anarchic energy and punk spirit of her bandmates, Amina finds herself torn between two worlds.
