Lucy Boynton and Drake Doremus with a series about broken hearts and missed opportunities



The series will be based on the novel of the same name by Josie Silver

Actress Lucy Boynton, best known for her role as Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody, will star in a romantic TV series from indie filmmaker Drake Doremus based on Josie Silver’s bestselling book.

The series, which is based on the book One Day in December, will be available on Netflix, and Lucy Boynton will serve as an executive producer in addition to the main role.

According to the online portal Deadline, the series will be based on Josie Silver’s novel of the same name, which achieved great success after becoming a New York Times bestseller at Random House in 2018 and being included in the selection of the actress’ popular book club Reese Witherspoon.

The book tells the story of Laurie, who, according to the publisher, is “pretty sure that love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but in the movies. But one snowy December day, through a foggy bus window, she sees a man who she immediately knows is her love. Their eyes meet, and a moment of pure magic follows.. . and then her bus takes off.”

Laurie then wanders around London for a year or so in search of a mysterious man. His name is Jack, she learns when he finally introduces himself to her at a Christmas party – as her best friend Sarah’s new boyfriend. “What’s Next for Laurie, Sarah and Jack,” they write at Random House, “it’s ten years of friendship, broken hearts, missed opportunities, unused paths and fatalism.”

Doremus is also the screenwriter of the series, which he is currently creating as a miniseries, with the possibility of further seasons, in the spirit of mega-successful miniseries, as was the last White lotus. The filmmaker is otherwise well known for his intimate and largely improvised films that examine romance in all its forms.

He has worked with Hollywood names like Felicity Jones, Kristen Stewart, Nicholas Hoult, Guy Pearce, Jennifer Lawrence, Ewan McGregor, Lea Seydoux and deceased Anton Yelchin. Most of the films premiered at Sundance.
