Dolly Alderton Novel 'Everything I Know About Love' Comes to Screens

Maggie (Emma Appleton)

Created and adapted for television by Dolly Alderton and inspired by her own wildly funny, occasionally heartbreaking, internationally bestselling memoir of the same name, Everything I Know About Love gives an unflinching account of surviving your 20s.

What can audiences expect from Everything I Know About Love? They will laugh, cry and ring their best friend immediately."
— Dolly Alderton

The central love story of Everything I Know About Love is between childhood best friends Maggie (Emma Appleton: Pistol, The Witcher, Traitors) and Birdy (Bel Powley: The Morning Show, Informer, Diary Of A Teenage Girl). But it is also a raucous girl gang show, set in a 2012 London house-share inhabited by four girls - Maggie, Birdy and their mates from university, Amara (Aliyah Odoffin in her debut TV appearance) and Nell (Marli Siu: Alex Rider).

The series is an unflinching deep dive into bad dates, heartaches and humiliations and begs the question: can platonic love survive romantic love as we grow up?
