Producer: Tiger Aspect Productions in association with Douglas Road Productions for ITV & Britbox

Genres: Drama


6 x 60’

Inspired by Sir Lenny Henry’s mother’s journey to Britain in the late 1950s, Three Little Birds is a life affirming returning drama series exploring
untold stories of love, sisterhood, parenting and friendship, and the joys, laughter and struggles of making a new life in the so- called Mother Country.

It follows three young Jamaican women who travel to Britain to start anew in the Midlands; spirited sisters Leah (Rochelle Neil – The Nevers) and Chantrelle (Saffron Coomber – EastEnders) and their pious friend Hosanna (Yazmin Belo –
What Just Happened), who are lured to Britain in search of new beginnings by their older brother Aston (Javone Prince – Dodger, PhoneShop). It charts the
successes and challenges they face, and the tensions and burden of what
they’ve left behind.

Three Little Birds is created and written by Lenny Henry. Russell T Davies serves as Executive Producer alongside Lenny, Angela Ferreira from Douglas Road Productions, Lucy Bedford and Kate Crowe from Tiger Aspect Productions, and lead director Charles McDougall (Julia, The Good Wife).
