Us Girls (BBC Sitcom, Joanne Campbell, Mona Hammond)

Published

on


In generational Sitcom Us Girls Bev (Joanne Campbell) tries to juggle her career as a journalist with bringing up her teenage daughter Aisha (Marlaine Gordon) and trying to do her best by her Mum (Mona Hammond).

Bev, from a West Indian background, worked for the local council whilst also working for lifestyle magazine Shades. Much of the humour stemmed from the dynamic between the three generations of women, with Bev usually caught in the middle.

There were some changes for the second season, Joanne Campbell was replaced by Nicola Blackman in the lead role of Bev and she had given up her council job to go full time on Shades.
