Meet the Cast: Dolly Alderton's Seven-Part "Everything I Know About Love" Series Is Coming Soon
Dolly Alderton's best-selling book, Everything I Know About Love, is being adapted into a seven-part series for BBC. On 24 August, a sneak peek into the show's cast was announced, and already we've spotted some familiar faces. Focusing on the story of best friends Maggie and Birdy, the series will explore their suburban adolescence in the early noughties, as they navigate bad dates, heartaches, and everything in between.
The official synopsis says that "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, who you may recognise from The Witcher, and Birdy will be played by Bel Powley, star of Diary of a Teenage Girl and The Morning Show.
"I am beyond thrilled with every actor we have on board for Everything I Know About Love. Aisha Bywaters has helped us find our dream cast and we are so excited to see them inhabit the world of the show and bring its stories and relationships to life," Alderton said of the news.
