Lecky first performed her one-woman play Superhoe as a staged reading with the Talawa Theatre Company in 2018 followed by an official debut at the Royal Court Theatre in January 2019, by which point the BBC had already commissioned a pilot from Lecky. At the end of 2019,[1] BBC Three officially greenlit the series, a six-part television adaptation of Lecky's play from Bonafide Films starring, written, and executive produced by Lecky herself. Also attached as executive producers were Lucy Richer, Ayela Butt, and Margery Bone. The pick-up by BBC Three was announced in February 2020.[2]

The rest of the cast, including Lara Peake, Jessica Hynes, Paul Kaye Mia Jenkins, Jordan Duvigneau, Flo Wilson, Jorden Myrie, Jason York, Chantelle Alle, and Mohammad Dalmar, was revealed in October 2021.[3] Notable guest actors included Sai Bennett, Tom Moutchi, Kiell Smith-Bynoe, Tom Stourton, and Renee Bailey.[4]

The creatives behind the series, including directors Dawn Shadforth and Stroma Cairns, first appeared on a panel to discuss the series at the 2021 BBC Showcase.[5] Principal photography began in March 2021.[6]


Mood, initially titled after the play Superhoe, was first announced in October 2021 as part of BBC's then upcoming winter slate.[7] BBC Three released the series' trailer in February 2022. BBC Studios is distributing Mood internationally; it started airing on BBC America in the United States, premiering November 6, 2022.[8]
