Out from the raunchiest depths of that signature British humor comes a new series so dirty and depraved, it might just put 'Fleabag' to shame. Okay, maybe not, but surely an interesting competition in the form of Marmie who is definitely not 'Pure' as the upcoming title on HBO Max suggests. With Charly Clive as the leading lady, and Joe Cole, whom you might remember from 'Black Mirror', 'Peaky Blinders' and more recently 'Gangs of London', here's all you need to know about the new comedy based on Rose Cartwright's book of the same name. Here's all you need to know about it. 

Release date

Having originally premiered on UK's Channel 4 in January 2019, the story of Marnie and her head full of X-rated thoughts comes to HBO Max on Thursday, August 27, 2020.

Plot

According to its official synopsis, "Marnie is not OK. She's had X-rated thoughts for the last 3,672 days and she doesn't know why or what they mean. When she jumps on a coach to London, she doesn't know a soul, not even herself, but in the city she will build a new life." But 'Pure' is not just all raunch and no substance. At its core, the plot involves Marnie' Pure-O or Purely Obsessional OCD where she can't help but have these explicit thoughts in her head, that too, most of the time. Her journey is captured in the six-part series, adapted from Cartwright's book.
