Channel 4

Starring Sam Heughan (Outlander, Suspect), Eleanor Tomlinson (The Outlaws, Poldark), Jessica De Gouw (Pennyworth, Our Man from Jersey) and Alfred Enoch (Tigers, How To Get Away with Murder), the first looks have been released for The Couple Next Door which is coming this Autumn to stream and watch live on Channel 4.

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…

The Couple Next Door will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK and will be available on STARZ in the US and Canada, as well as Lionsgate+, their international premium streaming service in Latin America, including Brazil.

Jo McGrath, Walter Iuzzolino, Alison Kee serve as executive producers and the producer is Jen Burnet. It was commissioned for Channel 4 by Rebecca Holdsworth, Drama Commissioning Editor. Karen Bailey, EVP of Programming is the executive overseeing The Couple Next Door for STARZ.

Filming took place earlier this year in Leeds and Belgium and specific transmission details will be announced in due course.

Beta Film will internationally distribute the series
