Ripley Parker creates her own Netflix series ‘Everything Now.’
First child born to Thandiwe Newton and Ol Parker; Ripley Parker is paving her own way in the entertainment industry.
And it dropped in on Netflix on October 5 and Ripley revealed that the story is partially based on her life.
So, what’s the story about? Let’s take a look.
Firstly, the series focuses on the journey of London teenager, Mia who returns to school after being treated for anorexia.
And learns to live her life again through a “Bucket List.”
But more than that, it’s a story of family, friendship and recovery.
So much so that it touches on the risks of trying to do too much too fast and rushing something that takes time.
Also, Parker dares to be different while attempting to find a “healthy balance” between living and recovery.

And both her parents couldn’t be prouder of their child but the fans are also showing their love and support.
