Black B*tch


The captivating drama series Black B*tch (working title) is a story of high stakes ambition, betrayal and treachery, playing out in the nation’s capital.

When Alex Irving, a charismatic and contradictory Aboriginal woman, is thrust into the national limelight after a horrific event, Australia’s embattled Prime Minister Rachel Anderson, sees a publicity goldmine for her party.

In a bold power play, she handpicks Alex for the Senate. But Alex wants to be more than just a political stunt: she wants to make a difference.

So, when the Prime Minister's cynical calculations betray her, Alex sets out for revenge that will send the political establishment into meltdown.
