Storyline for Trying on Apple TV

The series follows British couple Nikki (Esther Smith) and Jason (Rafe Spall), on their journey to adopt a child.

Adoption is not a breezy subject—it’s a real-life, emotional, and difficult process that countless people go through, often unsuccessfully.

So how does a series about such a sensitive and exhausting topic remain so light, so full of joy and optimism? 

Trying manages to understand itself in a way that sets it apart from other shows: it embraces its own charm, and is self-aware about the idealized world it has created.

As much as Nikki and Jason struggle, they have a supporting cast of characters, both friends and family, who are there to support them through it all.
