Dolly Alderton’s ‘Everything I Know About Love’ took the world by storm when it was released in 2018, and it’s still a must-read to this day. So it was no surprise when the news came that Everything I Know About Love by author, journalist and former HighLow cohost Dolly Alderton was being made into a TV adaptation.

The book is Dolly’s memoir, highlighting life in her 20s, a deeply personal and riotously funny account of everything from struggling to pay rent to dating, sex and friendships. The book brilliantly encapsulates everything that one goes through when they try to find themselves, from moving out of home to figuring what path they want to take and the big ol’ questions surround the meaning of life. The book is light-hearted, beautiful and actually, a pretty emotional look at the power of female friendships.

Now, the casting for the seven-part tv series has finally been announced. The TV adaptation will follow two childhood best friends Maggie and Birdy. Bel Powley, who’s best known for Diary of a Teenage Girl, The Morning Show and The King of Staten Island, will play the role of Birdy, while Emma Appleton, from The Witcher, the Last Letter from Your Lover and BBC Three’s Clique, will step into the role of Maggie, the character based on Dolly Alderton herself.

According to Dolly herself, the show will follow the same storyline as the book, however, will be semi-fictionalised so it’s not too close to the bone in terms of Dolly’s past and the various (real life) people that could be affected.

“It is an honour to be on their slate of upcoming shows. And before every boy I dated a decade ago messages me today to breezily ask how I am, it’s semi-fictionalised, so don’t panic fellas,” the author wrote online.
