The series is an adaptation of the book by Sally Rooney, one of Ireland's most acclaimed writers.
Today we are treated to the first look at the imagery of the forthcoming television adaptation of Sally Rooney's Normal People. Set in the downturn of the 2000s, the story traces the complex relationship between two teenagers, Connell and Marianne, who navigate social and socio-economic divisions. Filming took place in Dublin, Sligo and Italy.
Adapted by Sally Rooney herself, alongside writers Alice Birch and Mark O’Rowe, Normal People is set to be a 12-part drama for BBC Three in partnership with Hulu. It will star Daisy Edgar-Jones (War Of The Worlds, Cold Feet) as Marianne and Paul Mescal in his debut television role as Connell.
