They clash, then they fall in love...

Johnny Flynn is about to be your new British obsession, starring in a brand new drama series from the UK called The Lovers.

What is The Lovers about?

The series follows Janet (Gallagher), a bad-tempered, hilarious, Belfast supermarket worker who doesn’t seem to care about anything much, including her life, and Seamus (Flynn) 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.

Who else stars in The Lovers?

The series also stars Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones) and Alice Eve (Belgravia) who join Flynn and Gallagher.
