Prepare For This New TV Series About Love, Friendship And Navigating Your Twenties

Crying, laughing, sobbing, smiling.

If you’re a sucker for love, a sucker for a good read, a sucker for tales of failing and flourishing, coming of age, navigating your twenties and female empowerment well then, I’m sure you’ve heard all about Dolly Alderton’s book Everything I Know About Love.

Released in 2018, written as a memoir and reaching serious success, her raw and utterly relatable look at growing up and everything to do with life during ‘that period’ touched so many people that its now getting its very own series with the BBC.

Yep, the book is getting its own TV adaptation and it drops in less than two weeks.

Hitting our screens June 7th, Everything I know About Love will follow the same storyline as the bestselling book, with the synopsis reading:

Everything I Know About Love is set in 2012 in London, where a house-share in North London serves as the locale for an unflinching deep dive into bad dates, heartaches and humiliations. As the protagonists grow up, can they maintain their friendship?

Written and created by Alderton herself, the leading roles will be played by Emma Appleton as Maggie, Bel Powley as Birdy, Marli Siu as Nell and Aliyah Odoffin as Amara.

You might recognise Bel Powley from starring in The Morning Show alongside Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, while Emma Appleton starred in Pistol.

Sharing the first trailer, Bel posted it to Instagram and it’s safe to say it has pulled at our hearts… already.
