New comedy-thriller taking female-driven storytelling to new heights


Strap yourself in for a ‘brilliantly warped’ comedy about obsessive friendship.

Am I Being Unreasonable? is a brand-new comedy thriller about obsessive friendship, maternal paranoia … and a dead cat. Shot through with whip-smart humour, this mischievous blend of funny and frantic takes female storytelling to a refreshing new level.

Written by and starring real-life best friends Selin Hizli (Appropriate Adult and Grantchester, both on BritBox) and Daisy May Cooper (BAFTA winner for This Country), it’s been described as a “brilliantly warped” and “twisted, funny and downright clever” comedy about just how quickly lives can change – and unravel.

Cooper stars as Nic, a suburban mother stuck in a rut who finds a kindred soul in Jen (Hizli), prompting her dark secrets to bubble up. But is their newfound friendship truly therapeutic? Catch it on BritBox from Thursday, 6 July.
