The comedy drama follows recovering addict and comedian Mae, who is trying her best to curb her behaviours.
Her life is made harder after she forms a relationship with girlfriend George (played by Charlotte Ritchie) who becomes her main focus.
The deeply personal story with dark twists and turns follows Mae as she navigates a modern day world where gender and sexuality come with many meanings.
Speaking to Deadline about the new series, Martin said: “We cannot wait to make this show with E4, Netflix, and Objective Fiction – what a dream.
“I’m especially pumped to be co-writing Mae and George with my best friend Joe Hampson. He has such an incredible head of hair.
“We are excited to make a show that is both funny and sad, like our lives, and I hope they’ve factored therapy into the budget because I’m already hanging by a thread.”
Fiona McDermott, who is head of comedy for Channel 4, said she was thrilled to have Mae involved numerous projects.
The six-part series first aired on Channel 4 on March 18 and all episodes were then released on All 4.
Netflix managed the international distribution and the series was released to the rest of the world the following day.
Other recurring characters in the series include Lisa Kudrow as Mae’s mum Linda, who fans all know and love as playing Phoebe in the classic comedy Friends.
