Produced by Eagle Eye Drama (Suspect, Professor T, Before We Die), The Couple Next Door is a deliciously dark, psychological drama, exploring 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 (Eleanor 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 (Sam 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…
Commissioned by Rebecca Holdsworth, Channel 4 Drama Commissioning Editor, The Couple Next Door will premiere in the UK on Channel 4 and will be available on STARZ in the US and Canada in 2024.
Filming took place in Leeds and Belgium and Beta Film is internationally distributing the series.
