ITV2 calls on Noho to Tell Me Everything

UK commercial channel ITV2 is getting back into original drama commissioning with a series produced by ITV Studios-owned Noho Film and Television.

Paul Mortimer

Tell Me Everything was created by Mark O’Sullivan (Lee & Dean, The Agency) and written by O’Sullivan and Yemi Oyefuwa.

The six-part series explores what it’s like to be coming of age in the 2020s, examining the mental health facing today’s teens created by the omnipresence of technology and social media.

The show introduces 16-year-old Jonny Murphy, who is trying his best to navigate the world while suffering from undiagnosed depression, which he does his best to hide.

It was commissioned for ITV2 and ITV Hub by head of digital channels and acquisitions Paul Mortimer and ITV drama commissioner Chloe Tucker.

Mortimer said: “ITV2 is delighted to be back in the original drama game with this wonderfully conceived series aimed squarely at teens but with broader appeal, no doubt. An honest portrayal of teenage suburban life, it should resonate strongly with today’s young audience whose taste has become more sophisticated, and whose appetite for quality storytelling has never been greater.”

Noho Film and Television will produce with joint-MDs Robert Wulff-Cochrane and Camilla Campbell executive producing and overseeing production.

Prior to establishing Noho in 2012, the pair headed the drama commissioning team at Channel 4 where they commissioned Misfits, Fresh Meat, Any Human Heart, Top Boy, Cast Offs, Skins and This is England 86 and 88, among other shows. Most recently, Noho has been responsible for producing satirical comedy The Windsors and Zomboat! for ITV2.

Tell Me Everything will be set in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, and filming will start in the summer.

The drama has been co-funded by the British Film Institute’s Young Audiences Content Fund and will be produced in association with ITV Studios.
