The Lovers: First Look Trailer Released Online

Sky have released the first look trailer for the upcoming comedy-drama series The Lovers.


The official synopsis for the series is as follows:

The drama series follows Janet, a foul-mouthed, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who couldn’t give a shit about anything much at all, including her life, and Seamus, a handsome, self-centred, political broadcaster with what looks to be a perfect London life and a celebrity girlfriend.

So when Seamus unexpectedly drops into Janet’s world (literally over the wall and into her backyard) they instantly clash – and yet also find themselves inextricably drawn to each other. Set in Belfast, this is a sexy, funny, fight-y love story about two people who appear to be utterly wrong for each other – yet may just be utterly right.


The upcoming six episode series was commissioned by Gabriel Silver, Director of Commissioning for Drama at Sky Studios for Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content at Sky UK. Hannah Pescod serves as executive producer alongside Liz Lewin, Manpreet Dosanjh, Roanna Benn and Rebecca de Souza, with Chris Martin serving as producer. The Lovers is written by David Ireland and is directed by Justin Martin.


The Lovers stars Roisin GallagherJohnny FlynnConleth Hill and Alice Eve, with the series premiering later in the year.
