As her new drama I Hate Suzie launches, dramatist Lucy Prebble talks to Tom Sutcliffe about her writing career. Prebble is Co-Executive Producer and writer on the BAFTA, Golden Globe and EMMY award winning HBO drama Succession. She was the creator of the TV series Secret Diary of a Call Girl. She wrote the political thriller A Very Expensive Poison (Old Vic), and before that The Effect (National Theatre), which is a study of love and neuroscience, as well as the hugely successful drama Enron, about corporate fraud, which transferred to the West End and Broadway after sell-out runs at both the Royal Court and Chichester Festival Theatre. Prebble's latest TV show, I Hate Suzie, sees Billie Piper star as a celebrity who has her life upended when her phone is hacked and pictures of her emerge in an extremely compromising position. I Hate Suzie begins on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV on Thursday at 9pm. Presenter: Tom Sutcliffe Producer: Simon Richardson Main image: Lucy Prebble Image credit: Robert Viglasky/Sky UK
