NY-LON was a British-American television drama series that aired on Channel 4 in the UK and BBC America in the US in 2004. The show starred Rashida Jones, who is best known for her roles in The Office and Parks and Recreation, and Stephen Moyer, who later found fame in True Blood.
The show revolves around the long-distance relationship between Edie Miller, a New Yorker who works in the music industry, and Michael Antonioni, a London-based financial trader. The pair meet in a chance encounter in a bar in New York and instantly connect, but with Edie living in New York and Michael in London, they face the challenge of maintaining a long-distance relationship.
The show explores the difficulties of keeping a long-distance relationship afloat, including the challenges of dealing with time differences, the struggles of communicating through technology such as Skype and instant messenger, and the pain of being away from each other for long periods of time.
NY-LON also delves into the respective cultures of New York and London, exploring the differences between the two cities and how these impact on the lives of the show's characters. The show also explores the pressures that come with being successful in the music and finance industries, as well as the ups and downs of modern dating.
Throughout the series, Edie and Michael's relationship is continuously tested, as they face obstacles such as jealousy, infidelity, and the temptation of other potential romantic interests. The show also features a supporting cast of characters, including Edie's close friends and Michael's colleagues, each offering their own perspectives on relationships and modern dating.
Despite its innovative format and talented cast, NY-LON only lasted for one season, with just seven episodes. The show's unique premise, which incorporated elements of both British and American culture, was not enough to save it from cancellation.
However, the show remains a cult favorite among fans of both Rashida Jones and Stephen Moyer, as well as anyone who has struggled with a long-distance relationship. NY-LON may have been short-lived, but it left an indelible mark on the television landscape, paving the way for other shows to explore the complexities of modern relationships and the challenges of maintaining a connection across a great distance.
NY-LON is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (7 episodes). The series first aired on August 24, 2004.
