The seven-part series will be directed by Harlots director China Moo-Young and is loosely based on Dolly's 2018 memoir, which chronicled her experiences of growing up, falling in love and navigating her twenties with her best friends.

The synopsis for the show reads: "Set in a 2012 London house-share with flashbacks to suburban adolescence in the early noughties, the series is an unflinching deep dive into bad dates, heartaches and humiliations and begs the question: can platonic love survive romantic love as we grow up?"
