Co-written by Rose Matafeo, Alice Snedden, and Nic Sampson, and produced by Avalon for BBC Three in the UK and HBO Max in the U.S. The second 6 x 30 series is set to continue the story of Jessie (Rose Matafeo), a millennial living in East London juggling two dead end jobs and navigating the complications of becoming romantically involved with famous film star Tom (Nikesh Patel; Four Weddings and a Funeral, Hulu; Indian Summers, Channel 4). After having decided to stay and pursue a relationship with him, Jessie must deal with the real-world consequences of her grand gesture. Minnie Driver (Modern Love, Amazon; Good Will Hunting) is set to reprise her role as Tom’s agent Cath, while Russell Tovey (Years and Years; BBC One, Him & Her; BBC Three) joins the cast for the brand-new series.
