Dolly Alderton's Everything I Know About Love is coming to TV

The adaptation is being described as "Sex & the City for millenials".

Dolly Alderton's best-selling memoir, Everything I Know About Love, will be adapted for TV by the BBC.


The memoir is an insight into the journalist's life so far, and is equal parts touching and hilarious. Everything I Know About Love offers Alderton's relatable perspectives on love, friendship, career, body-image and so much more.

The BBC adaption will follow two millennials - Maggie and Birdy - as they navigate adult life in their first falt-share.

The show's official synopsis describes it as a "generous, funny, warm-hearted and uplifting Sex & the City for millennials which covers bad dates and squalid flat-shares, heartaches and humiliations, and, most importantly, unbreakable female friendships."

Dolly announced the news on Instagram earlier this week.


"I am so excited that my TV show Everything I Know About Love is being announced today," she said.

"It's a semi-fictionalised adaptation of my memoir of the same name. And it's a messy, boisterous, joyful romantic comedy about two female best friends from childhood and what happens when they move into their first London house share.


"I cannot stress how thrilled I am that it's being by made by Working Title and the BBC."

She added that this project is over four years in the making, and feels that with Working Title, it's in "very safe hands".

"BBC drama has made extraordinary TV over the last year and it is an honour to be on their slate of upcoming shows."

Dolly also offered some reassurance to her former partners ahead of the show's release.


"Before every boy I dated a decade ago messages me today to breezily ask how I am, it's semi-fictionalised so don't panic fellas."

The air-date and cast for Everything I Know About Love is yet to be revealed.
