A brand new promotional photo has been released for BBC Three’s Clique.
Created by Jess Brittain (Skins), the six-part drama sees two best friends drawn into an elite clique of alpha girls led by their lecturer in their first few weeks at university.
Clique stars Synnove Karlsen in her television debut as Holly alongside The Fall actress Aisling Franciosi as her best friend Georgia, with Louise Brealey (Sherlock) as lecturer Jude McDermid.
The cast also includes Emun Eliot (Game of Thrones), Rachel Hurd-Wood (Peter Pan), Sophia Brown, Ella-Rae Smith, Emma Appleton, Mark Strepan (New Blood), Sorcha Groundsell (Iona), Peter Bankole (The Physician), Chris Fulton (One of Us) and Harris Dickinson (Home).
BBC Studios Executive Producer, Christopher Aird teased: “Clique is drama for a new generation of viewers starring a new generation of brilliant young actors. Jess Brittain has created truly authentic characters and propelled them into a seductive and by turns shocking story.”
The official synopsis reads: “Childhood soulmates Georgia and Holly 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, just like the circle of bright students she surrounds herself with. Georgia’s effortless entry into the clique leaves Holly out in the cold. But 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?”
Clique began filming in Edinburgh last September and will premiere on BBC Three this spring.
