New BBC Drama

 Michaela CoelMichaela Coel









BBC One is to screen the new 12-part drama I May Destroy You created, executive produced, stars and is co-directed by Michaela Coel. 

The series explores the question of sexual consent in contemporary life and how, in our modern landscape of dating and relationships, we make the distinction between liberation and exploitation.

When a piece of her writing garners online acclaim, Arabella Essiuedu (Coel) - easily distracted, non-committal and carefree - finds herself fêted as the ‘voice of her generation,’ with an agent, a book commission and a helluva lot of pressure.

 But when she is sexually assaulted in a nightclub, her life changes irreversibly and Arabella is forced to reassess everything: her career, her friends, even her family. As she struggles to come to terms with what has happened, Arabella begins a journey of self-discovery. 

I May Destroy You is a BBC and HBO co-production. It has been commissioned by Piers Wenger for BBC One. 

It will debut on Monday 8 June on BBC One and BBC iPlayer at 22.45.
