Big Mood is a new comedy on Channel 4 that will be airing soon, which stars Nicola Coughlan and Lydia West.

It follows two best friends Maggie (Coughlan) and Eddie (West) who have done almost everything together for the past decade or so.

The series as a whole is described as a "vivacious and rebellious portrayal of female friendship when infiltrated by the complexities of a serious mental illness".

As reported in the Radio Times, the synopsis reads: "Best friends Maggie and Eddie (played by Nicola Coughlan and Lydia West) have lived in each other’s pockets for 10 years, through thick, thin, and multiple challenging eyebrow trends.

"But with the rest of their lives looming, careers hanging in the balance and Maggie’s bipolar disorder making an unwelcome return to form, Eddie begins to question whether this friendship is really in their best interests."
