BBC Three’s six episode thriller series Clique will premiere on Sunday March 5th, it has been announced.
Clique follows childhood friends Georgia and Holly, who are only a few weeks into the so-called best years of their lives at university in Edinburgh, when Georgia gets drawn into the elite clique of alpha-girls, led by lecturer Jude McDermid. Jude’s brand of feminism is alluring, but Georgia’s effortless entry into the clique leaves Holly out in the cold. Holly’s jealousy soon escalates to panic as Georgia begins acting erratically.
Alarmed by this transformation in her best friend, Holly is compelled to follow her into Jude’s closely guarded circle. What she discovers is a seductive world of lavish parties, populated by Edinburgh’s highest-powered business men and women. But it’s a world underpinned by sordid compromise, and as Holly exposes its deeply corrupt core, the danger mounts from all angles, for her and Georgia. Can Holly reclaim her soulmate? And at what cost to herself?
The six episode drama was created by Skins scribe Jess Brittain and is set up as a co-production between BBC Studios and Balloon Entertainment. Aisling Franciosi (The Fall) and newcomer Synnove Karlsen lead a cast that also includes Rachel Hurd-Wood (Peter Pan, Home Fires), Sophia Brown (Topboy, Guerrilla), Mark Strepan (The Mill, New Blood), Sorcha Groundsell (Iona), Peter Bankole (River, Peaky Blinders), Chris Fulton (Stonemouth, One Of Us), Harris Dickinson (The Medium, Home) and newcomers Ella Rae-Smith and Emma Appleton.
