Michaela Coel's new drama I May Destroy You will start on BBC One next month.
Created by, executive produced and starring Coel, I May Destroy You explores sexual consent and the minefield that is dating and relationships.
The 12-part series brings into question the fine line between liberation and exploitation in the modern landscape.
Arabella Essiuedu (Coel) finds herself hailed as the ‘voice of her generation’ when a piece of her writing receives critical acclaim.
Carefree, non-attached and easily distracted, Essiuedu lands an agent and a book commission, along with the pressure to live up to her so-called 'literary genius'.
But one night she is assaulted in a nightclub and her whole life is turned upside down. Essiuedu doesn’t know how to come to terms with what has happened and is forced to rethink how she sees her career, her friends, and even her family.
Essiuedu goes on a journey of self-discovery and has to find an inner strength she didn’t know she had.
The rest of the cast includes Weruche Opia (Sliced), Paapa Essiedu (Kiri), Adam James (Belgravia), Aml Ameen (Yardie), Sarah Niles (Catastrophe) and Ann Akin (The Commuter).
I May Destroy You is a BBC and HBO co-production and the first episode will air on Monday 8th June at 10:45pm on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The second episode will air on Tuesday 9th June at 10:45pm with subsequent episodes airing on Mondays and Tuesdays.
