ALICE & JACK: FIRST LOOK IMAGES AND TRAILER FOR NEW CHANNEL 4 DRAMA
Channel 4 commission new drama Alice & Jack from award-winning writer and film director Victor Levin, in partnership with Fremantle, Groundswell Productions, Me + You Productions and De Maio Entertainment.
Alice & Jack stars Andrea Riseborough (To Leslie, Birdman) alongside Domhnall Gleeson (Brooklyn, The Revenant). Aisling Bea (Greatest Days, This Way Up), Aimee Lou Wood (Sex Education, Living) and Sunil Patel (This Time with Alan Partridge, Stath Lets Flats) also feature in supporting roles.
When Alice (Andrea Riseborough) and Jack (Domhnall Gleeson) first meet they’re bound by a connection so powerful it seems nothing can break it, but will their path lead them to a place of happiness and togetherness?
Or will life and their own emotional complexities get in the way? Honest, intimate, and surprisingly funny, the series shows love in all its unexpected, technicolour, kaleidoscopic beauty.
Nick Lee, Head of Acquisitions and International at Channel 4, said: “The intimacy of Alice & Jack makes it both heart-wrenching and unmissable in equal measure. The inventive producing partners, the expert performances and the overall creative energy has resulted in something quite special; we are delighted to be the UK partner at Channel 4.”
Christian Vesper, CEO of Global Drama, Fremantle, commented: “Very rarely does a TV series pitch love and comedy in such a flawless combination. We’re both proud and humbled to be bringing such a smart and sophisticated drama from a team of world class creatives at the very top of their game...
"Working so closely with these partners of extraordinary value and extensive experience from the very inception of this project seemed the only way to embrace this new and exciting opportunity.”
Lorenzo De Maio, De Maio Entertainment, said: “This project is the result of a truly exceptional group of storytellers coming together, from Vic’s deeply touching scripts to the incredible producing team to Juho and Hong’s unique vision and the brilliant cast led by Andrea and Domhnall. We are very excited to be working with such a talented team to bring this beautiful love story to audiences worldwide.”
Michael London, Founder & CEO, Groundswell Productions, said: “Vic Levin’s Alice & Jack has been a dream project, an ode to true love at once passionate and prickly and full of the humour of real life...
"Groundswell is indebted to Andrea Riseborough, Domhnall Gleeson and Juho Kuosmanen for bringing the story to life so unforgettably and to our friends at Fremantle, Channel 4, Lorenzo De Maio and Me + You for all their hard work guiding the tone and the vision of such a singular project.”
Created and written by Levin, Alice & Jack is a love story for the ages and will air in 2024.
