Set and filmed in and around Manchester, Boy Meets Girl was discovered through a BBC talent search for the best script that offered a positive portrayal of transgender characters.
Created by Elliott Kerrigan and written by Kerrigan and Simon Carlyle, the six part show is being produced by Tiger Aspect for BBC Two.
Leo’s had a bad day. He’s been fired (again), is being given a hard time by his mum and, to cap it all, his blind date fails to show up. But then he bumps into Judy and finds himself deeply attracted to this surprising and beguiling woman.
They bond over drinks and, unfazed by the fact that there’s a bit of an age gap between them, arrange to meet the following evening. Leo’s mother is unhappy that he’s having dinner with an older woman.
But Leo doesn’t care what she thinks; he knows that he’s just met someone very special.
Coming to BBC Two later this year.
