What is Flatshare about?
It’s safe to say we expect the TV adaption to closely follow the main story arc of the book - which is a modern-day take on Ephron’s classic You’ve Got Mail.
Tiffy Moore and Leon Twomey have a unique living situation, to say the least. Whilst Tiffy is at work, Leon occupies the one-bed flat. Tiffy has the flat all to herself in the evenings - with Leon nowhere to be found.
Although their friends think they are crazy, the unusual living situation works for the two twenty-somethings who can’t afford London’s rental prices.
The real kicker? Tiffy and Leon have never met! Communicating only through post notes to each other in the flat they share.
We don’t want to give too much away - but the book is a heart warming and wholesome story that is a true slow-burning romance.
Behind the romance, Flatshare also delves into the character’s backstories, dealing with a number of mature themes including toxic ex-partners and the incarceration of family members.

Who is starring in Flatshare?
Casting the romantic leads in a book-to-TV adaption is always tricky - readers often have the ‘perfect’ idea of what the characters will look like and can be disappointed if it doesn't translate well on screen.
Luckily, news of the two leads of Flatshare has been met with a mostly positive response from die-hard fans of the book.
Jessica Brown Findlay, who has starred in Downton Abbey, The Riot Club and Munich: the Edge of War will be stepping into the role of Tiffany.
Anthony Welsh, who is best known for his work in The Great and Fleabag has been cast as Leon.
The Witcher’s Bart Edwards will be appearing as Tiffany’s ex-boyfriend, Justin, and Shaq B Grant, Shaniqua Okwok and Jonah Hauer-King are also joining the ensemble.
