SIGNIFICANT OTHER: NEW COMEDY-DRAMA FOR ITV TO LAUNCH IN 2023
Katherine Parkinson and Youssef Kerkour are the leads of Significant Other, a brand new comedic-drama from Nicola Shindler's Quay Street Productions (part of ITV Studios).
The series, written by Dana Fainaru and Hamish Wright, starts filming next month and will air on ITVX in 2023.
Adapted from yes Studios’ award-winning Israeli series of the same name, the 6 x 30-minute series will follow two lonely neighbours who embark on a hesitant, obstacle-filled relationship after drastic life events bring them together.
As this strange love story unfolds with wryly observed wit and warmth, could these deeply flawed individuals – both at a time in their lives when change is difficult and rarely expected – influence each other for the better?
Nana Hughes, ITV’s Head of Comedy said; “The arrival of ITVX gives us more opportunities to commission a broad range of comedies and a dedicated place for the genre to call home...
"We want a huge cross section of contemporary, diverse and inclusive comedy. We want to take risks but most importantly we want our audiences to find shows that reflect them and make them laugh.”
