Together is a romantic comedy about a couple called Tom and Ellen, written by and starring Jonny Sweet. It is based on his Radio 4 series Hard To Tell.

Together focuses on Tom: a charmless, witless but passionate 26-year-old prone to failure. He still has the same amount of self-possession as when he was aged 11 and, despite some genuine human potential, is yet to assemble anything close to what any other adult might call a 'life'.

Tom meets Ellen in an interesting way, and there's clearly a spark. When Tom and Ellen are together things seem to work - it's only in the spaces outside the relationship; the intrusions of real life, and the deadly collaboration of parents, siblings, friends and exes, that the flailing attempts to make good first impressions, arrange first dates, and hold a relationship together, seem to unravel.

Each episode centres on the next step of Tom and Ellen's new relationship viewed through the interferences, obstructions and general disasters wrought by their family and friends.

Shot in and around London in Summer 2015, Together sets Tom and Ellen's evolving relationship against a backdrop of "our chaotic and breathtakingly beautiful capital city".
