Channel 4 releases first trailer for The Couple Next Door

Channel 4 has released the first trailer for upcoming psychodrama The Couple Next Door, starring Eleanor Tomlinson and Sam Heughan.

Produced by Eagle Eye Drama (Suspect, Professor T, Before We Die), The Couple Next Door explores the claustrophobia of suburbia and the fallout of chasing your deepest desires. Directed by Dries Vos (Suspect, Professor T) and written by David Allison (Bedlam, Marcella) the six part series is “an addictive, emotional roller coaster and looks at how we never know what goes on behind closed doors.”

When Evie (Tomlinson) and Pete (Alfred Enoch) move into an upscale neighbourhood, they find themselves in a world of curtain twitching and status anxiety but soon find friendship in the shape of the couple next door – alpha traffic cop Danny (Heughan) and his wife, glamorous yoga instructor Becka (Jessica De Gouw). As time goes on, these two couples get increasingly close to each other and one fateful night, become sexually entangled in a way that will change their lives forever.

The six-parter will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK at an as yet unconfirmed date before the end of 2023 and will be available on STARZ in the US and Canada, as well as Lionsgate+, the international premium streaming service in Latin America, including Brazil.

Jo McGrath, Walter Iuzzolino, Alison Kee serve as executive producers and the producer is Jen Burnet. It was commissioned for Channel 4 by Rebecca Holdsworth, drama commissioning editor. Karen Bailey, EVP of Programming is the executive overseeing The Couple Next Door for STARZ.

Filming took place earlier this year in Leeds and Belgium and further transmission details will be announced “very soon.” Beta Film will handle international distribution.
