EXCLUSIVE: Tubi is set to premiere the Nicola Coughlan (Bridgerton, Derry Girls) and Lydia West (It’s A Sin, Inside Man) comedy series Big Mood exclusively in the U.S. and Canada in April.

The six-episode series is written and created by Camilla Whitehill, directed by Rebecca Asher and produced by Fremantle’s Dancing Ledge Productions.

Big Mood follows best friends Maggie and Eddie (Coughlan and West, respectively)who have lived in each other’s pockets for ten years, through thick, thin and multiple challenging eyebrow trends. But with the rest of their lives looming, careers hanging in the balance and Maggie’s bipolar disorder making an unwelcome return to form, Eddie begins to question whether this friendship is really in their best interests.

Big Mood is a powerful series that is unapologetically authentic,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi, in a statement to Deadline. “In the hands of creator Camilla Whitehill and director Rebecca Asher, Nicola and Lydia give beautifully painful and comedic portrayals that are rooted in truth. With the much-welcomed addition of Big Mood to our slate of relevant comedies, Tubi is doubling down on content that appeals to our fastest-growing segment of young and diverse viewers.”

“I’m ecstatic that Big Mood will soon be arriving stateside with Tubi, although I’m also partially convinced it’s a prank played by a cabal of my enemies because it seems quite a lot too good to be true,” Whitehill shared. “I’m hoping America loves it, and that they name an airport after me, which is way more likely over there because they have more airports than us.”

The cast also includes Niamh Cusack, Eamon Farren, Luke Fetherston, Kate Fleetwood, Rob Gilbert, Rebecca Lowman, Sally Phillips, Ukweli Roach and Amalia Vitale.

Big Mood is executive produced by Lotte Beasley Mestriner, Laurence Bowen and Chris Carey for Dancing Ledge Productions and produced by Georgie Fallon. The casting director is Lauren Evans. BIG The series was commissioned for Channel 4 in the UK by Commissioning Editor, Laura Riseam.

Fremantle is handling global distribution for the series. The deal was brokered by Fremantle’s Lisa Honig, Senior EVP of Distribution North America with Sam Harowitz, VP of Acquisition and Partnerships at Tubi.
