Emmerdale is set to air an all-female episode for International Women’s Day.
Bosses of the long-running soap plan to use an all-female cast for the special episode on March 8th 2019.
Executive producer of the show, Jane Hudson, announced the news at a press event, as she said: “I think it’s the first time a soap has had an all-women team.”
“It is International Women’s Day, so what we want to do for that episode is to have it produced by a female, written by a female, directed by a female, and the entire cast will be female, including all the background artists,” she revealed.
The episode is also set to have “almost an entire female crew.”
There are currently two female producers and one female executive producer working on the soap.
