Aug. 21 (UPI) -- Doctor Who and Penny Dreadful actress Billie Piper has signed on to star in the Sky drama, I Hate Suzie.
Slated to debut in 2020, the eight-part series was written by Lucy Prebble whose credits include Succession and Enron.
Piper, who co-created the show, plays Suzie Pickles, "a star on the wane" who "has her whole life upended when her phone is hacked and a photo of her emerges in an extremely compromising position," a press release said.
"It's taken years to finally get Lucy, my long-term GF and favorite writer in London -- to work with me again. We feel we've created something timely and not for the faint-hearted. If you too suffer with anxiety, shame, compulsive lying but like a laugh, please tune in at some point," Piper said.
The women previously collaborated on the ITV series, Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
