Six-part romantic comedy starring Jessica Brown Findlay and Anthony Welsh, adapted from Beth O’Leary’s global bestseller.  Two cash-strapped London twentysomethings share a bed. The catch is – they have never met and, if their plan works out, they never will.

Interior sets for the London flat – where the majority of filming took place – were built at The Bottle Yard Studios.

Bristol Film Office supported filming at a host of city locations that doubled for London and Brighton, including: Leonard Lane and Corn Street in the Old City, residential properties on Deanery Road and Victoria Square in Clifton, offices at the Paintworks development on Bath Road, The Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel, Chandos Road Costcutter (Redland), The Old Fish Market Tavern (Baldwin Street), Averys Wine Cellar (Culver Street), The Cocktail Club (Corn Street), Boca Bar Finzel’s Reach, Jamaica Street Stores (Stokes Croft) and Al Fresco Cucina Italiana (Westbury on Trym).
