The show has now commenced filming in Welwyn Garden City, hometown of show creator Mark O’Sullivan.

“Tell Me Everything introduces us to 16-year-old Jonny Murphy (Davies), who is trying his best to navigate through this world. Growing up hasn’t been easy, and although loved by his friends and family, Jonny suffers from undiagnosed depression and anxiety which he does his best to hide. So when he is faced with the most gut-wrenching tragedy, Jonny has to decide – is he going to let events overtake him or is he going to learn how to live?”
Created by Mark O’ Sullivan (Lee and Dean, The Agency), and written by Mark O’Sullivan, Yemi Oyefuwa, Kat Sadler & Cameron Loxdale, Tell Me Everything marks ITV2’s first original drama in ten years. The contemporary drama has been commissioned for ITV2 and ITV Hub by Content Director, On Demand and Acquisitions, Paul Mortimer and ITV Drama Commissioner, Chloe Tucker.
