Hulu is adding BBC Three series 'In My Skin' to its library. The coming-of-age dark comedy about a Welsh teenager living a double life is coming to the streaming service early in June. On the way, the protagonist has to tackle the issues of mental illness, her closest friendships and her sexuality. The series is closely based around creator Kayleigh Llewellyn's life. The story of the protagonist is "close to my own heart," the creator had said, adding, "And I hope in some way we can help to chip away at the shame that so often surrounds mental illness." 'In My Skin' had won the award for Best Television Drama at BAFTA Cymru. Here is everything you need to know about its arrival on Hulu. 

Release date

'In My Skin' will premiere on Hulu on July 30.

Plot

'In My Skin' follows a "Welsh teenager Bethan (Gabrielle Creevy), who lives a double life as she tries to keep her mother’s mental illness and her father’s alcoholism a secret. But when your mother (Jo Hartley) is committed to a mental facility near your school, and your father is an alcoholic Hell’s Angel, flying under the radar isn’t so easy."
