Disney has acquired the US distribution rights to the Australian drama series, “Love Me”, which will be released on Hulu on Friday 1st April 2022.
“Love Me” reveals how love can appear at the most inconvenient of times, as it does for Clara, Glen and Aaron, who find themselves at an emotional crossroads following an unexpected event that changes their lives forever.
The Mathiesons have it all. As Glen, his daughter Clara and son Aaron reel from the shock death of Christine, they are all struggling to deal with their hurt in different ways. Glen is stalked by the loss of his wife, and the guilt he carries with him. Clara’s in a state of emotional ambivalence – the years of a fraught mother/daughter relationship have left damaging scars. Then there’s Aaron – he’s genuinely hurt. And unsure why the others aren’t seemingly as sad.
A classy Melbourne-set drama series, Love Me stars Hugo Weaving (The Lord Of The Rings, Captain America: The First Avenger & The Matrix), Bojana Novakovic (Birds Of Prey, Operation Buffalo, Rake), William Lodder (Wakefield, Go Karts), Sarah Peirse (Sweet Tooth, Stateless, The Letdown) and Shalom Brune-Franklin (The Tourist, War Of The Worlds, Line Of Duty).
The six-episode series is produced by Warner Bros International Television Australia for the Foxtel group. And has been was written by Alison Bell, Leon Ford, Adele Vuko and Blake Ayshford and directed by Emma Freeman (Stateless).
In a statement, DCD Rights head Nicky Davies Williams said:
“Love Me is truly a drama for our time. We’re delighted this emotional and life-affirming series has found an excellent home on Hulu.”
Michael Brooks, managing director of Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia added:
“Love Me has resonated extremely well with audiences across Australia, and we’re excited for the international market to get a taste of this wonderful series, starting with Hulu, who are such a powerhouse in strong, character-driven drama.”
