Derry Girls star Saoirse-Monica Jackson is a busy woman at the minute.

She has a slew of projects lined up.

And now she is stepping into the world of Netflix with a new dark comedy series that will transport us back to the 14th century.

The racy series stars Tony Hale, Zosia Mamet, and Saoirse-Monica Jackson which is loosely inspired by the 14-century story collection The Decameron.

The synopsis reads: “You are cordially invited to a wine-soaked sex romp set in the Italian countryside. The Decameron is a soapy dark comedy that examines the all-too-timely theme of class struggles in the season of a pandemic.

“In the year 1348, the Black Death strikes hard in the city of Florence, and a handful of nobles retreat with their servants to a grand villa to wait out the plague with a lavish holiday. But as social rules wear thin, a scramble for survival ensues, brought to life by a cast of characters both cunning and outrageous.”

And if the trailer is anything to go by we are in for a crazy, fun treat!

The eight-part series is hitting the streaming service on July 25th
