Sky have announced the start of production for upcoming drama, The Lovers, starring Johnny Flynn (Beast, Emma) and Roisin Gallagher (The Fall, The Dry).
Following Seamus (Flynn), a handsome, conceited political broadcaster with what appears to be the ideal London life and a celebrity girlfriend, and Janet (Gallagher), a foul-mouthed, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who couldn't give a shit about anything much at all, including her life, the series contrasts their characters' lives.
Therefore, when Seamus abruptly enters Janet's world (literally over the wall and into her backyard), they clash right away but also discover that they are irresistibly drawn to one another.
This sensual, humorous, and combative love story, which is set in Belfast, is about two people who seem to be completely unsuited for one another but might actually be.
The series also stars Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones, Holding) as Janet's supermarket boss, Philip.
