Masterpiece has dropped the first trailer for Alice & Jack, the UK TV series starring Andrea Riseborough (To Leslie) and Domhnall Gleeson (The Patient) on March 17.
Created and written by Victor Levin (Mad About You, Mad Men), Alice & Jack features Riseborough and Gleeson as the titular characters in what distributor Fremantle described as a “love story for the ages.” Logline adds: “When they first meet they’re bound by a connection so powerful it seems nothing can break it, but will their path lead them to a place of happiness and togetherness? Or will life and their own emotional complexities get in the way.”

“We unite in yearning to see evidence of real love, and, too, are soothed to share with one another the ache of its inevitable imperfection,” said Riseborough in a statement. “This story is for anyone who could or couldn’t make the sacrifice that love demanded, for anyone who battles and accepts the one who makes their soul soar, for anyone who longs to feel, who has felt, and who feels the tingling anticipation of love’s joy.”
Alice & Jack premiered at TIFF in September. Masterpiece exec Susanne Simpson described the show as an “exceptionally beautiful and profound series that we are proud to add to our lineup.”
Alice & Jack brings together major production companies in Academy Award-nominated Groundswell Productions, the BAFTA-winning Me + You Productions, De Maio Entertainment, and Fremantle. Fremantle is also handling global sales.
The 6-part series premieres March 17 at 10/9c on PBS air, PBS.org, the PBS App and the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video Channel.
