NY-LON was a somewhat groundbreaking drama series from Channel 4, set in two great cities and features a passionate love affair spanning 3,000 miles.
It was the first ever UK drama series to be filmed partly on location in New York’s Lower East Side and had an exciting transatlantic cast, NY-LON follows the troubled romance between a bohemian New York record store clerk, Edie (Rashida Jones), and London stock broker Michael (Stephen Moyer), after their chance meeting in his city.
The series followed the disparate couple through the highs and lows of their very modern romance, the intervention of opinionated friends and the inevitable culture clash.
The abbreviations of the two cities’ names formed the series’ title.
