The BBC has released some first-look images from upcoming drama series Everything I Know About Love – based on Dolly Alderton’s best-selling memoir of the same name.


The images include individual character stills of stars Emma Appleton, Bel Powley, Marli Siu and Aliyah Odoffin as Maggie, Birdy, Nell and Amara respectively, while the quartet also appear together in one shot, smoking cigarettes on a grassy hill.

According to the BBC, the seven-part series will give “an unflinching account of surviving your 20s”, following a group of friends in a 2012 London-house-share and including flashbacks to suburban adolescence in the early noughties.
