The highly-anticipated show, which tackles dating and sexual consent, is coming to HBO next month.
The highly-anticipated series boldly tackles dating sexual consent, through the story of its protagonist Arabella (Coel), whose life is forever changed after she becomes the victim of having been given a date rape drug.
Here's the official description of the show:
A fearless, frank and provocative half-hour series exploring the question of sexual consent and where, in the new landscape of dating and relationships, the distinction between liberation and exploitation lies. Set in London, where gratification is only an app away, the story centers on Arabella (Coel), a carefree, self-assured Londoner with a group of great friends, a boyfriend in Italy, and a burgeoning writing career. But when her drink is spiked with a date-rape drug, she must question and rebuild every element of her life.
The show also stars several rising actors, including Weruche Opia, Paapa Essiedu, Aml Ameen, Adam James, Sarah Niles and Ann Akin. As mentioned in a previous post about the show, "the majority of that cast make up Arabella's diverse friend group. Opia's character, for instance, plays Terry Pratchard, her best friend, described as "a struggling actor but always hopeful her career's about to pop." While Essiedu plays Kwame Acheampong, "the best male friend to Arabella and Terry. He's an exercise class teacher and Grindr regular."
The show is set to premiere on HBO on Sunday, June 7. Check out the official trailer for 'I May Destroy You' below.
