The multi-hyphenate is back to challenge everything we thought we knew about dating and sex.

HBO has released the official trailer for `I May Destroy You,` its hotly-anticipated topical new TV series from Michaela Coel, the BAFTA-winning creator of `Chewing Gum.` Coel executive produces, writes, co-directs and stars in the series, which the network promises will be bold and candid, exploring the question of sexual consent in the present day given how much the landscape of dating and relationships has changed. And given Coel's previous work, as well as the look of the trailer, it likely will be provocative.

Previously titled `January 22nd,` the official synopsis for `I May Destroy You` reads: `Set in London, where gratification is only an app away, the story centers on Arabella (Coel), a carefree, self-assured Londoner with a group of great friends, a boyfriend in Italy, and a burgeoning writing career. But when her drink is spiked, she must question and rebuild every element of her life.`

HBO is certainly no stranger to envelope-pushing series. And `I May Destroy You` will likely fit in perfectly on the network that Zendaya's `Euphoria` - or any number of its hard-hitting documentaries - call home.
