The BBC has set a release date for Everything I Know About Love, the adaptation of Dolly Alderton’s book of the same name. The full season will debut on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on June 7.
Journalist and author Dolly Alderton is adapting her award-winning memoir All I Know About Love for a brilliant semi-fictional BBC TV drama about two best friends.
Her memoir, which won the National Book Award for Autobiography of the Year in 2018, is a personal and funny account of surviving your 20s, exploding with energy and enthusiasm, with its fair share of joy and messiness and angst. occasional. It also offers a relatable perspective on important topics like love, body image, career, and many more.
Described by the BBC as “a generous, funny, caring and uplifting Sex & The City for millennials,” the adaptation will embrace the same themes of the memoir, including “bad dates and seedy roommates, heartbreak and humiliation, and , most importantly, unbreakable female friendships.”
The seven-episode season, which was written and created by Alderton, was directed by China Moo-Young (“Pennyworth”). It stars Emma Appleton (“Pistol”) as Maggie, Bel Powley (“The Morning Show”) as Birdy, Marli Siu (“Alex Rider”) as Nell, and Aliyah Odoffin as Amara.
Rounding out the cast are Connor Finch (“Professor T”) as Street, Jordan Peters (“Gangs of London”) as Neil and Ryan Bown (“A Beautiful Request”) as Nathan.
The romantic comedy drama was produced by Working Title Television, which is part of Universal International Studios, a division of the Universal Studio Group.
“All I Know About Love” is set in 2012 London, where a North London share house serves as the setting for “an unflinching deep dive into bad dates, heartbreak and humiliation.” As the protagonists grow older, will they be able to maintain their friendship?
Sharing the first look images on Twitter earlier this year, Alderton wrote, “Here’s a first look at my upcoming TV show ‘All I Know About Love,’ a romantic comedy drama about female friendship. She has all my heart and I can’t wait for you to meet these four girls.”
The series is executive produced by Alderton, Surian Fletcher-Jones, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner for Working Title Television and Jo McClellan for the BBC. Simon Maloney produces.
