With the huge, well-deserved success of Normal People, eyes were naturally going to be on the next adaptation of author Sally Rooney's work from the same team. The first teaser for Conversations With Friends is now online.

Here's your basic synopsis... Conversations With Friends follows Frances (Alison Oliver), a 21 year old college student, as she navigates a series of relationships that force her to confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time.

But here's something a little meatier, courtesy of the book's description: "Frances is twenty-one years old, cool-headed and observant. A student in Dublin and an aspiring writer, at night she performs spoken word with her best friend Bobbi, who used to be her girlfriend. When they are interviewed and then befriended by Melissa, a well-known journalist who is married to Nick, an actor, they enter a world of beautiful houses, raucous dinner parties and holidays in Provence, beginning a complex ménage-à-quatre. But when Frances and Nick get unexpectedly closer, the sharply witty and emotion-averse Frances is forced to honestly confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time."

With Lenny Abrahamson and Alice Birch once more involved behind the scenes, the cast also includes Joe Alwyn, Sasha Lane and Jemima Kirke. Conversations With Friends will be on BBC Three (which is back, back back as a TV channel as well as on the iPlayer) in the UK and Hulu in May.
