Dolly Alderton is to adapt her best selling memoir Everything I Know About Love into a new BBC One drama.
Award-winning journalist Dolly Alderton will turn her own wildly funny, occasionally heart-breaking, internationally bestselling memoir of the same name into a new TV series.
Set in a 2012 London house-share with flashbacks to suburban adolescence in the early noughties, Everything I Know About Love gives an unflinching account of surviving your 20s.
A teaser shares: “Maggie and Birdy, besties since school, finally land in London to live it large, when the unexpected happens – dependable Birdy gets a steady boyfriend.
“A generous, funny, warm-hearted and uplifting Sex & The City for Millennials which covers bad dates and squalid flat-shares, heartaches and humiliations, and, most importantly, unbreakable female friendships.”
Maggie will be played by Emma Appleton (Pistol, The Witcher, Traitors) and Birdy played by Bel Powley (The Morning Show, Informer, Diary Of A Teenage Girl).
They’re joined by Marli Siu (Alex Rider) playing Nell, Jordan Peters (Pirates, Gangs Of London) playing Neil and making their on-screen TV debuts are Aliyah Odoffin playing Amara, Connor Finch playing Street; and Ryan Bown in his breakout role as Nathan.
Dolly Alderton said: “Everything I Know About Love is a semi-fictionalised adaptation of my memoir of the same name.
“It’s a messy, boisterous, joyful, romantic comedy about two best female friends from childhood and what happens when they move in to their first London house share and the first phase of adulthood.
“I cannot stress enough how thrilled I am that it is being made by Working Title and the BBC.”
China Moo-Young, Director added: “We have a sublime cast for Everything I Know About Love and I’m so excited to see them bring all the heart and humour of Dolly’s scripts to life on screen.”
The seven part series will air on BBC One and iPlayer in 2022 with a release date to be announced.
