HBO Max’s comedy television show Minx Season One executive produced by showrunner/creator Ellen Rapoport, Paul Feig, and Dan Magnante, takes place in 1970s Los Angeles. Joyce (Ophelia Lovibond), an earnest young feminist reporter, reluctantly joins forces with low-rent erotic publisher Doug (Jake Johnson) to create the first erotic magazine for women. Doug’s right-hand woman Tina (Idara Victor), center-fold photographer Richie (Oscar Montoya), and versatile Bambi (Jessica Lowe) all work hard to make the erotic magazine Minx happen. Joyce deepens her relationship with her big sister Shelly (Lennon Parham) as she forms the magazine.
Awards Radar had the chance to speak with the main cast of this edgy hysterical show: Ophelia Lovibond, Jake Johnson, Idara Victor, Oscar Montoya, Jessica Lowe, and Lennon Parham. Lovibond spoke to us about how Joyce is “very well-meaning, but she can be quite pretentious and condescending without meaning to be. She can be awkward around people but learns as the show goes on.”
Victor spoke about her favorite part of working on Minx:
“I love everyone. Everyone is so much fun. We miss each other. The day we were leaving was hard because I told everybody that I would miss seeing them every day. It (acting on Minx) didn’t feel like work. It just felt like having a great time with some hilarious people. Everyone was just so fun, funny, and didn’t take themselves too seriously. We just had a good time every day. So definitely the cast.”
