The Lovers

Directed by the UK’s Justin Martin and written by Northern Irish screenwriter David Ireland, this captivating comedic drama features outstanding performances from British actors Johnny Flynn, Roisin Gallagher, Alice Eve, Conleth Hill and Martin Quinn. Filled with charm, humour and a light peppering of Northern Irish politics, the series was co-produced by UK outfits Sky and Drama Republic.





After being left by her husband, Janet (Roisin Gallagher) - a depressed supermarket worker - plans to give up on life altogether until she meets self-centred political broadcaster Seamus (Johnny Flynn). Despite his seemingly perfect life in London, including a gorgeous celebrity girlfriend, Seamus and Janet find themselves hopelessly drawn to one another.
