Her new show Disability Benefits will explore the way that people with disabilities are underestimated by society


If you’re looking for a new hilarious sitcom to binge, Rosie Jones might have just the thing for you. It’s just been announced that she will be writing and starring in a new Channel 4 sitcom called Disability Benefits. 

Following the life of a young woman called Emily who has had her disability benefits reduced to nearly nothing, Rosie’s new show will see her character start her own drug empire. 

Rosie has always been open about living as a lesbian with ataxic cerebral palsy. This new sitcom highlights the ways that people with disabilities are often underestimated and overlooked. 

“I am incredibly excited to be making Disability Benefits for Channel 4,” Rosie said. “It has always been my dream to have my own sitcom and now it is coming true! Bring it on!!”

Earlier this year, Rosie was thrown into controversy for her documentary entitled Rosie Jones: Am I a R*tard? due to the use of a slur in the title. 

This new venture will see Rosie continue to explore the way that people with disabilities are treated in society, and the six-episode series will no doubt be full of her sharp wit. 

Further details about Disability Benefits will be announced at a later time.
