The BBC series Am I Being Unreasonable? is making its way to the States this April. In a recent deal with BBC Studios, Hulu acquired the U.S. rights to all episodes of the comedy-thriller, which first debuted in the UK near the end of 2022. The half-hour series consists of six episodes for its first season and will premiere on Hulu in the U.S. Tuesday, April 11. Ahead of the release, Hulu shared the official trailer.
The show follows Nic (multi-BAFTA winner Daisy May Cooper), a woman struggling with a loss she’s unable to share with others while being trapped in “a depressing marriage.” The only thing keeping her going is her young son, Ollie (Lenny Rush). However, when a new person named Jen (Selin Hizli) comes to town, Nic’s life begins to move towards a better place and, “through this kindred soul, her dark secret starts to bubble up.”
The trailer begins relatively mellow at first, emphasizing the bond between Nic and Ollie — who seems to be an integral part of keeping Nic on track with some responsibilities. While it’s apparent the two have a good relationship, Nic also comes across as a rather lonely person with no truly helpful support system in place. When she meets Jen, she’s noticeably happier now that she has someone beyond her home to spend time with. However, Jen isn’t quite what she seems as Nic begins to open-up to Jen, and Nic’s husband claims that Jen “has a weird energy.” What started as a wholesome connection takes a turn as Nic tries figure out what’s really going on with her new friend.
