The BBC has revealed the first images from the keenly anticipated series adaptation of “Everything I Know About Love,” based on journalist, author and podcaster Dolly Alderton’s internationally bestselling memoir of the same name.
Images have been revealed of Emma Appleton (Maggie), Bel Powley (Birdy), Marli Siu (Nell), Aliyah Odoffin (Amara) and Connor Finch (Street).
“Everything I Know About Love” won a 2018 National Book Award for autobiography and was shortlisted for the 2019 Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year in the British Book Awards.
The romantic comedy drama about female friendship provides an unflinching account of surviving your 20s.
The seven-part series for BBC One will be directed by China Moo-Young (“Intergalactic,” “Harlots”) and produced by Working Title Television (“We Are Lady Parts,” “Hanna”), which is part of Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group.
Set in a 2012 London house-share, with flashbacks to suburban adolescence in the early 2000s, the series is a deep dive into bad dates, heartaches and humiliations and asks whether platonic love can survive romantic love as the protagonists grow up.
The series is executive produced by Jo McClellan for the BBC, Dolly Alderton, and Surian Fletcher-Jones, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner for Working Title Television; and produced by Simon Maloney. It was commissioned by Piers Wenger, director of BBC Drama.
The series will be distributed by NBCUniversal Global Distribution. Filming took place in Manchester and London.
