What if Fleabag was in New York City... and she was fat? Enter Big Girl, the award-winning series from creator and star Katharine Scarborough which provides an honest, vulgar, and hilarious look at the life of Katie, a single, Big girl just trying to live her best 30-something life in the Big city.
Like The Art of Blowing It (which we featured back in December 2020), Big Girl is another series with a plus size leading lady, not weighed down by the tired trope of "sad fat girl".
Big Girl follows Katie, a fearless, plus-size woman striving to succeed in our size-obsessed culture, unapologetically living her life to the fullest, despite toxic friends, bad dates, and a fatphobic society. Unabashedly relatable, Big Girl's pilot episode jumps headfirst into meticulously and succinctly revealing the uncomfortable (and sometime quite offensive) adventures in plus-size dating. With tv-quality production, Scarborough's 5 episodes (each short emulates a different film genre) is a can't miss.

Big Girl won Best Sketch Comedy, Best Director, Best Ensemble Cast, Best Script, and Best Episode at the British Web Awards; Best Director and Best Series at Two Roads International Film Festival; and Katharine Scarborough herself won Best Actress at Last Shot Film Festival.
Catch Big Girl on Seeka TV, March 29 2021.
