Can women really have it all – if by ‘all’ we mean sexual freedom, a career, a family and their sanity?
‘Spreadsheet’ looks to answer this conundrum, centring on a divorced, hectic mother-of-two Lauren – played by Katherine Parkinson – who is looking for sex without commitment.
Answering a call from a horny guy while her child has a meltdown about toothpaste and she struggles to find that crucial piece of paperwork for court, while dealing with ridiculous questions from her twit of an ex-husband Jake, is not the erotic experience she’s after. To get what she wants, Lauren is going to need a watertight planner.
With the help of best friend Alex, Lauren develops the ‘Spreadsheet’: a database of sex options, customised to ensure her sushi train of sex rolls around with variety and order amidst the chaos of her life. What Lauren didn’t expect was a slew of needy men, which apparently even a well-managed excel tracker can’t control.
Watch the hilarious Katherine Parkinson in ‘Spreadsheet’ from Wednesday 18th May, 10pm on Channel 4 and All4.
