First announced via the BBC last August, the show was written by Michaela Coel and she would also star as the protagonist Arabella Essiedu. Arabella Essiedu is a “self-assured, care-free Londoner with a group of great friends, a holiday fling turned aspirational boyfriend in Italy and a burgeoning writing career. But when she is spiked with a date-rape drug, every element of her life and identity is called into question,” as described in Deadline.

A synopsis from last year reads:

Set in London, where gratification is only an app away, the story centers on Arabella (Coel) whose raw and personal experience of consent sits at the heart of the story. Through Arabella we meet a group of fictional friends and colleagues whose sexual adventures frequently collide with a world in which new codes of sexual practice are emerging.

Among the show’s cast are Weruche Opia playing Terry Pratchard; Paapa Essiedu playing Kwame Achaempong, male best friend to Arabella and Terry;  Aml Ameen, Adam James, Sarah Niles and Ann Akin.

The show will premiere in 2020, as production has begun in earnest.

Michaela Coel was quoted saying,

We’re incredibly lucky to have pulled together such a talented cast to bring these scripts to life and I look forward to sharing this work with you all next year
