Overshadowed (BBC-3)

Published

on

In A Land Of Plenty (BBC-2 2001 with Helen McCrory and Robert Pugh)

Based on Eva O’Connor’s award winning play, Overshadowed tells the story of a young girl called Imogene (Imo) whose life spirals out of control when she meets the monster of anorexia personified. The eight-part short-form series has been written by television newcomers Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan, and will be produced by Kay Mellor’s Rollem Productions for BBC Three.

Imo used to be sparkly, vivacious and outgoing. Recently however she’s becoming withdrawn, gaunt and obsessed with exercise. The reason? Her new best friend. She’s casting a dark shadow over Imo’s life and won’t rest until Imo is a shadow of her former self.

Kay Mellor, Rollem Productions Executive Producer says: “I am so excited and thrilled that Overshadowed has been commissioned by Damian Kavanagh and Piers Wenger for BBC Three with Elizabeth Kilgarriff executive producing. It is such an important, modern story of our times told in an innovative and exiting way by two young people. It has long been a dream of mine to be able to help give a voice to new writers and I am delighted to be championing Eva O’Conner and Hildegard Ryan who have something really important to say.”
