A GLASGOW university student is set to have her moment in the spotlight as her new TV series hits screens tonight. 

The six-part series was created by Lorna Martin, who gained an MA in TV Fiction Writing from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2016, following the release of her best-selling book Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.

The former journalist has been developing the show with BAFTA winner Sharon Horgan, who also stars in the series, since 2011.

Set in Dublin, the series tells the tale of three career-driven pals in the their 30s who fear their lives are moving in different directions.

Lorna isn't the first of the city centre university graduates to hit the big time, with past students working on shows such as EastEnders, Casualty, and Holby City.

Proud lecturer Chris Dolan said: "Lorna is the first MATV graduate to get a show of her own, devised and written by her.

"It's a tremendous achievement.”

Each graduate leaves with two calling-card scripts - a 60-minute original drama and the first episode of a long-running series.

Chris added: “The industry knows our students will be ready from day one, they will not make the rookie mistakes.

"That’s why I think we’ve been successful."

The course will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a special event hosted by Scots actor David Hayman, in the Oran Mor later this month. 

Women on the Verge will air on W at 9pm.
