Mr. Loverman

The BBC and Fable Pictures (Wild Rose, Rocks) have announced new drama series Mr Loverman, based on the acclaimed 2013 novel by the Booker Prize-winning author Bernardine Evaristo for BBC One and iPlayer.

Lennie James (Save Me, Line of Duty) will star as the exuberant protagonist, Barrington Jedidiah Walker, in the eight-part drama adapted by Nathaniel Price (The Outlaws, Noughts & Crosses). Sony Pictures Television (“SPT”) will distribute the series internationally.

Mr Loverman is a life-affirming story about family, love, and being true to yourself.

Bringing to life Bernardine Evaristo’s ground-breaking exploration of Britain’s older Caribbean community, Mr Loverman paints an incisive portrait of a family, exploring aspirations and regret, parenthood, and social expectations about sexual orientation and love.
