The "funny, filthy, brutally honest look at modern lives" comes from 'Shameless' writer Danny Brocklehurst.

Caryn Mandabach Productions, producers of BBC/Netflix hit Peaky Blinders, and Sharon Horgan's Merman, behind Channel 4/Amazon comedy Catastrophe, are in development alongside Kapital Entertainment on Dirty, a new series for Amazon Studios written by Danny Brocklehurst (Shameless, Safe). 

A funny, filthy, brutally honest look at modern lives, Dirty is the story of a principled woman who takes her first steps into a world of moral complexity. She discovers that everyone has secrets and that everyone, to some extent, is dirty.

“I love Danny’s writing, and I loved this idea from the minute I read it," said Horgan, who in January signed a two-year deal with Amazon "There’s an atmosphere and grit to it that feels very new. We’re delighted that we get to bring it to life."

Added Brocklehurst: “I'm thrilled to be partnering with Caryn Mandabach Productions, Merman and Amazon to bring this unique show to life."

Jamie Glazebrook for Caryn Mandabach Productions said: “In Dirty, Danny has created a truly surprising lead. I’m so happy to be working with Danny, Merman, Kapital and Amazon, which is the perfect home for a series that’s going to be hugely entertaining and deeply resonant.”

Caryn Mandabach and Glazebrook will executive produce for Caryn Mandabach Productions along with Horgan and Clelia Mountford for Merman, Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor of Kapital Entertainment, and Brocklehurst.

Caryn Mandabach Productions is repped by Shelley Reid, Merman is repped by WME and George Davis, and Brocklehurst is repped by CAA, United Agents and Thruline.
