Feel Good is a British comedy-drama television programme created by Mae Martin and Joe Hampson. The six-part programme premiered its first episode on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2020, after which all six episodes were released on All 4. Netflix handled international distribution and released it internationally on 19 March 2020.
The show follows the development of George and Mae's romance in contemporary London. Mae, a Canadian comedian (a version of Mae Martin's own persona) meets George, a repressed middle-class English woman, at the comedy club where she performs. The pair begin dating, and George learns that Mae is a former drug addict. George encourages Mae to attend a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, where she meets fellow recovering addicts like Maggie, a quirky middle-aged woman who takes Mae under her wing. As the series progresses, George struggles to tell friends and family about her relationship with Mae, to Mae's frustration.
