With Showtime's brilliant Work In Progress and the return of Sex Education, there's so much great LGBTIQ+ TV content at the moment that it's almost impossible to find the screen time to inhale it all.

Then again, we do love a challenge.

The semi-autobiographical Feel Good on Netflix is another promising new series. Written, created by and starring Canadian comedian/actress Mae Martin, Feel Good sees Martin play Mae, a comedian and recovering addict “whose addictive behaviors and intense romanticism dominate every single part of her life.”

Mae soon meets George, played by Charlotte Ritchie, and the pair fall quickly in love.

According to a press release for the series: “They embark on an intoxicating romance as Mae juggles relationships with her parents, fellow addicts in a drugs support group, her colleagues at the local stand up club, and most importantly tries to transform her relationship with George from an addictive one to a healthy one."

Excitingly, the series also stars Lisa Kudro as Mae’s mother, Linda.

“I’m beyond excited for people to finally see my semi-autobiographical show Feel Good,” Martin said in a statement.

“I really hope that people laugh, connect with the characters, and root for Mae and George as a couple. We tried to  make a show that’s funny, heartbreaking, and occasionally completely bizarre, because that’s what life is like.”

Feel Good will be released on Netflix March 19.
