Tue, Sky Atlantic HD, 9pm & 10pm
In the glamorous and bustling El Sirocco nightclub, adorned with palm trees and jeweled lanterns, a band is setting up on stage as a young woman rushes into a phone box to make an intense call.
TV&Satellite Week is at a Manchester studio, which has been turned into a sumptuous bar in the steamy heart of Tangier, to watch filming for Sky Atlantic’s provocative six-part drama Little Birds, loosely inspired by the erotic short stories of Anaïs Nin.
The series is set in 1955 and centers on New York socialite Lucy Savage, played by Dirty John’s Juno Temple. Following psychiatric treatment to ‘cure’ what her parents see as her unnatural behavior, Lucy goes to Tangier to marry English lord Hugo Cavendish-Smythe (The Windsors’ Hugh Skinner).
