MUST SEE TV: You & Me – the groundbreaking ITVX drama on Love, Loss and Redemption

A BRILLIANTLY British drama has been praised by viewers after exploring the gritty reality of love and loss – and it’s a  groundbreaking and a visual masterpiece. 

You & Me on ITVX explores what it means to find love, what it means to lose love, and what it takes to try and love once again. 

It’s been produced by a forward-thinking team of top telly execs including the well-respected former producer of EastEnders? – Dominic Treadwell Collins and has been written and created by Jamie Davis, in his screenwriting debut, and what a way to introduce yourself to the nation of streamers. 

It’s bursting with new talent and sees the brilliant up and coming Harry Lawtey (Industry, The Pale Blue Eye), Jessica Barden (The End of the F***ing World, Pieces of Her, Far From The Madding Crowd) and Sophia Brown (The Witcher: Blood Origin, Giri/Haji and Borderland) alongside Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Broadchurch, The A Word)- yes! It’s our Hayley! 

It’s 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. 

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.

Harry Lawtey, 26 plays Ben, a young northerner in London who finds his life changed forever when catastrophe strikes on the happiest day of his life. 

***SPOILER ALERT*** 

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. 

Told over two separate timelines across the three episodes, You & Me reveals, chapter by chapter, the tragedies that have shaped Ben, Emma and Jess.
