Alyssa McClelland Directs New Netflix Series
'The Fuck It Bucket' Stars Stephen Fry and Sophie Wilde
Alyssa McClelland, who has made award-winning work for clients as varied as Google and Air New Zealand, has been based in London directing a number of episodes of new Netflix series ‘The Fuck It Bucket’. McClelland was the set-up director for the series, which stars Stephen Fry, and Australian-born rising talent Sophie Wilde (‘You Don’t Know Me’, ‘Eden’).
The dramedy, which was produced by Left Bank Pictures (‘The Crown’), follows a young woman, Mia, who emerges from hospital after treatment for anorexia to a world that she no longer recognises.
Concerned that her adolescence is rapidly disappearing underneath her feet, Mia dives into the world of high school life while trying her best to catch up to a social scene she worries has left her behind.
McClelland’s work combines the darkly comedic with a cutting understanding of character, performance and tension. She is the director of the absurdist and humorous ‘Unexpected Power’ for AEG, which won a gold LIA Award.
She says setting up ‘The Fuck It Bucket‘ has been a joy and honour, “I relished every moment bringing Ripley (Parker)’s words to life and creating the dynamic, funny, delicate and conflicted world of Mia Polanco.”
