Star and writer of new comedy show, Drifters says her new comedy show "is not like Girls".

Jessica Knappett told Newsbeat said the comparison to the hit US comedy show only stretched to the fact that they both feature female casts.

She added that the characters in her show aren't as "sexy" as its American counterpart, but it's through her real life experience that she's managed to write the comedy.

Jessica was talking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Chi Chi Izundu

Drifters starts on E4 tonight (Thursday 31 October).
