The Agency is delighted to see that ITV, ITX and Happy Prince TV have released the cast and announced the commencing of filming for our phenomenal writer client Jamie Davis’ new series YOU & ME. Starring Harry Lawtey, Jessica Barden, Sarah Brown, Jamie’s fabulous new relationship 3 x 60′ drama will premiere on ITV’s new, free streaming service ITVX. Russell T Davies serves as Executive Producer.

The drama will premiere on ITV’s new, free streaming service ITVX in 2023.

YOU & ME is a fresh, funny and surprising new 3-part contemporary romantic comedy packed with compelling twists and turns. Joining Laqtey, Barden and Brown, are Julie Hesmondalgh, Andi Osho, award-winning stage star Janie Dee, Lily Newmark & Ben Starr.

BAFTA wining director Tom Vaughan (who has worked on various television projects written by Agency clients like Rob Williams’ SCREW, Mike Bartlett’s PRESS & DOCTOR FOSTER) is directing. Dominic Treadwell-Collins and Alexander Lamb are Executive Producing. Michael Ray is the producer.

We can’t wait for audiences to discover Jamie’s fantastic script which will see Harry Lawtey play Ben, a young northerner in London who finds his life changed forever when catastrophe strikes on the happiest day of his life. 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…

Harry Lawtey says:

“It’s a real privilege to be trusted with Ben’s story. You & Me is a brilliant, contemporary look at what it means to love. It’s about hope, heartache and that tendency for life to move a little faster than you’re able to keep up. Working alongside Sophia, Jess and this great crew is a joy – I can’t wait to share what we’ve made.”

Jessica Barden says:

“I feel so lucky to be working with so many talented and iconic people. The type of story we are telling is what the British film and TV industry does best, and I can’t wait for people to see the show!”

Sophia Brown says:

“I’m thrilled to be working alongside the brilliant Jess and Harry to help bring Jamie’s beautiful scripts to life. I fell in love with the characters so quickly – at every turn they made me laugh, then made me cry. What makes the project so special is how swiftly we capture the intricacy of life – how delicate love, loss, friendship and parenthood are in the modern world.”
