The eight-part series is created by new talent Emma Moran. From BAFTA, Golden Globe, Emmy, and Peabody Award-winning production company Sid Gentle Films, this is a fresh, innovative comedy about being young and finding your feet in a confusing world, when all you’ll ever be is ‘ordinary’.
Ten years ago, everyone over the age of 18 got their superpower. But Jen, a painfully self-aware 25-year-old woman, is still waiting to get hers. She’d take anything at this point. Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation and her flatmates, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower.
The cast includes Máiréad Tyers (Belfast) who plays the lead alongside Sofia Oxenham (Poldark) and Siobhán McSweeney (Derry Girls). Tyers plays Jen, Sofia Oxenham plays Jen’s best friend Carrie, and Siobhán McSweeney plays Jen’s mum.
Bilal Hasna, Luke Rollason, Safia Oakley-Green and Robbie Gee also star.
“Extraordinary” was one of the first UK originals unveiled for Disney+’s 60 planned European productions by 2024.
The series is executive produced by Sally Woodward Gentle, Lee Morris (Killing Eve) and Charles Dawson.
