All I Know About Love Series Preview: Trailer, Cast, Plot, Photos
all i know about love, based on Dolly Alderton’s bestseller, arrives on Peacock on August 25, 2022 following the success of its first season on BBC One. The seven-episode comedy-drama was created by author Alderton who adapted his memoir for the series and serves as its executive producer.
all i know about love follows four friends as they attempt to make it through their twenties while coping with love and heartbreak. The cast is led by Emma Appleton as Maggie and Bel Powley as Birdy, with Marli Siu as Nell and Aliyah Odoffin as Amara. The first season also features Connor Finch as Street, Ryan Bown as Nathan, Jordan Peters as Neil, and Jill Halfpenny as Roisin.
Author Dolly Alderton thinks the show’s appeal lies in its subject matter, even though the series is set in London in 2012.
“No matter where you are in the world, everyone knows or remembers what it’s like to be heartbroken. Everyone knows what it’s like to lose someone very close who you thought you were spending your life with,” Alderton said. “Everyone knows what it’s like to try to figure out what kind of adult you want to be and feel a bit lost in the adult world. I also think it provides a great story; we always knew it was going to happen in 2012 and we wanted to tell it like a period piece, for lack of a better word. We wanted an episode about the London Olympics. We wanted an episode about the Diamond Jubilee. We wanted an episode about the launch of dating apps.
Surian Fletcher-Jones, Eric Fellner, Working Title Television and BBC executive producer Jo McClellan, with Simon Maloney producing. China Moo-Young directed episodes one, two, three, and four. Julia Ford directed episodes five, six and seven.
The first season was filmed in Manchester, London and New York, and premiered on BBC One on June 7, 2022. The first season scored a 93% fresh rating on rotten tomatoes.
The parcel: The central love story of all i know about love is between childhood best friends Maggie and Birdy. But it’s also a rowdy girl gang show, set in a 2012 London flatshare inhabited by four girls – Maggie, Birdy and their college mates, Amara and Nell. The series is an unflinching deep dive into bad dates, heartache, and humiliation and asks the question: can platonic love survive romantic love as it grows?
