Jessica Brown Findlay is heading removed from the luxurious county property the place she launched her profession. The “Downton Abbey” alumna will check out decidedly much less glamorous dwelling preparations in “Flatshare.” Paramount+ snagged rights to the London-set drama forward of its U.Ok. launch this summer season. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the information.
Based mostly on a best-selling novel by Beth O’Leary, “Flatshare” is penned by Rose Lewenstein (“On the Edge”). The collection follows Tiffany (Brown Findlay) and Leon (Anthony Welsh, “The Nice”), “two cash-strapped twentysomethings who share a mattress — regardless of having by no means met. They time-share a flat as she works throughout the day at a content-mill web site and he spends nights working at a hospice. They get unexpectedly drawn into each other’s lives, and an attraction begins to evolve backward,” the supply teases.
“’Flatshare’ offers a taste of the high-quality native content material that viewers can stay up for from Paramount+,” stated Sebastian Cardwell, deputy chief content material officer, U.Ok., for Paramount.
Chloë Wicks (“On the Edge”) is part of “Flatshare’s” administrators’ roster.
“Courageous New World” and “Harlots” are amongst Brown Findlay’s different credit.
“Previously, issues have occurred to me personally and to plenty of different girls the place the media have tried to show or disgrace us,” Brown Findlay instructed Glamour in 2019. She defined, “It’s attention-grabbing as a result of as I become old and play attention-grabbing characters and phenomenal girls, I discovered my very own acceptance of myself. I really feel liberated and I not really feel any disgrace. You’re all the time having to work together with media and it might have this different finish to it. It’s taken me plenty of private progress to place my chin up once more and never apologize for being a lady. I’ll by no means apologize for being a lady. In all of the scope and vary that it’s to be a lady, I’ll by no means apologize.”
