- Comedy drama ‘Love Me’ written and directed by Josephine Bornebusch
- Six part series will premiere on Viaplay in autumn 2019
- NENT Group set to premiere 20 original productions every year
How can love change life? Through a story of friendship, grief and romance spanning three generations of Stockholmers, ‘Love Me’ embraces one of humanity’s biggest questions in a way that’s sometimes touching, often comic and always irresistible.
‘Love Me’ (Swedish title: ‘Älska mig’) co-stars Sverrir Gudnason (‘Borg vs McEnroe’), Johan Ulveson and Ia Langhammer (‘The Truth Will Out’), Gustav Lindh (‘Jordskott’) and Görel Crona (‘Spring Tide’).
Sofie Palage (‘Garden Lane’) is producing the series for Warner Bros. International Television Production Sverige. Film Capital Stockholm co-produces and filming is already underway in Stockholm.
Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, NENT Group EVP and Head of Content: “This comedy drama has the pacing, production values and psychological depth associated with the very best Nordic drama productions, but this time with more laughs. NENT Group is committed to creating unique entertainment experiences for a wide range of audiences and we’re convinced that viewers across the Nordic region will fall for ‘Love Me’.”
