YOU & ME: NEW RELATIONSHIP DRAMA COMING TO ITVX
You & Me is a fresh, evocative and surprising new 3-part contemporary drama packed with compelling twists and turns.
Harry Lawtey plays Ben, a young northerner in London who finds his life changed forever when catastrophe strikes on the happiest day of his life. Jessica Barden plays Emma, a rising theatre star who hides tragedy behind her success. And Sophia Brown plays Jess, a young woman whose life takes an unexpected turn when she’s running for a bus…
You & Me is a quintessentially modern relationship drama exploring what it means to find love, what it means to lose love, and what it takes to try and love once again. Warm, lyrical, engaging and enchanting, but also profoundly moving and unabashed in confronting the very real struggles that can be faced in the modern world, You & Me is Davis’ unique and uncompromising vision of modern love and relationships.
Told over two separate timelines across the three episodes, You & Me reveals, chapter by chapter, the tragedies that have shaped Ben, Emma and Jess. And as the “then” gives way to the “now”, a chance encounter leads their lives (and their loved ones) to collide. As they find themselves offered a second chance at love, will they take it, or will the past hold them back?
Also featured in the cast are Julie Hesmondhalgh as Ben’s mum Linda, Andi Osho as Jess’s mum Pam, award-winning stage star Janie Dee as Emma’s mum Hannah, with Lily Newmark playing Joey, Emma’s sister.
You & Me is more than just a love story. It is also a story about love…about finding love when you least expect it, about losing it, about parental and sibling love, about sex and friendship, about the difficult decisions we must all make in the name of love, and the often searingly painful cost of love.
