BBC Two has commissioned a new series “about three people who are made for each other.”
Produced by House Productions, the eight-part Trigonometry is written by Duncan Macmillan and Effie Woods, and features a cash-strapped London couple who open their small apartment to a third person.
Somehow, the new addition makes the flat seem bigger, not smaller. Gradually, many things become easier, nicer, better with an extra pair of hands.
Described as “funny and full of sexual tension,” the series “has emotional and psychological truthfulness at its heart.
This is a world of consequences, in which the characters have everything to lose.
As this unusual relationship becomes unavoidable, the trio approach it with the prudence of people in their 30s, and overthink it in a way only this generation can.
But even when common sense, friends and family is telling them that this relationship is doomed, they simply cannot be apart…
Duncan Macmillan and Effie Woods, say: “We’re thrilled to be working with House Productions and the BBC to bring this unconventional and very adult romcom to life.
“Trigonometry is about negotiating new relationships with compassion and humour.
“Set in a city that can feel cold and unfriendly, at a time when we’re more divided than ever, this is a show about love.”
Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, said: “Duncan and Effie’s pilot script had us at hello.
“It’s a playful, funny and frank account of modern love and sex in a fast changing world and asks the very pertinent question: could three be better than two?
“Duncan and Effie strike a unique tone and we are delighted to be working with House Productions on this stand out piece for BBC Two.”
