Brand New BBC Three Drama Overshadowed Announced
Based on Eva O’Connor’s award winning play, Overshadowed tells the story of a young Irish vlogger called Imogene (Michelle Fox – Doctors) whose life spirals out of control when she meets the monster of anorexia personified.
Starring a host of fresh new talent, this compelling, haunting and funny series has been written by Irish television newcomers Eva O’Connor and Hildegard Ryan.
Shot in an innovative new format, Overshadowed tells Imogene’s story through a series of vlogs. All eight episodes are told from Imo’s point of view, giving a unique documentary-style insight into teenage life and her increasingly fragile mental state.
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 Recently however she’s becoming withdrawn, gaunt and obsessed with exercise.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” Anna (Eva O’Connor). She’s casting a dark shadow over Imo’s life and won’t rest until Imo is a shadow of her former self.
