What is Mood about?

The six-part series follows a 25-year-old singer and rapper named Sasha with dreams to make it big. When she splits from her boyfriend and gets kicked out of her family home, a chance meeting with a girl named Carly seemingly opens up a lucrative new world that might just help Sasha get what she wants.

The series will explore a number of interesting topics around social media

The drama began life as a one-woman play titled Superhoe that creator and star Nicôle performed at the Royal Court Theatre back in 2019, which also is why many people have drawn to comparisons to Fleabag which likewise started as a play.

Viewers can expect to see the series explore a number of interesting subjects, including the world of online influencers, sex work, hustle culture, colourism and homelessness and feature an original soundtrack from Nicole.
