New sales for the second season include Yes-dBS and Hot (Israel), Proximus and Pickx+ (Belgium), and streaming service CBC Gem (Canada), in addition to previous sales to Acorn TV (UK, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, India) and Viaplay (Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Netherlands).
Since its premiere in 2021, the first season of “Love Me” has been acquired by nearly 50 territories, with both series 1 and 2 being picked up by premium streaming service Hulu in the United States; Paramount+ for Italy, France and Germany; Paramount Global across Latin America and the Caribbean; and Canal+ for Czech Republic and Slovakia. At the same time, all episodes of “Love Me” will be available on Australia’s video streaming service Binge from April 6.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer 'Love Me' to our clients. It is a wonderful piece of drama that combines laughter, loss and love in a very authentic and relatable way. These universal emotions are shared by each of us – giving the series very strong appeal to audiences in every part of the world,” commented Nicky Davies Williams, CEO of DCD Rights.
A Warner Bros. International Television Australia Production for the Foxtel Group, with major production investment from Screen Australia and financed with support from Film Victoria, “Love Me” is described as an authentic and intimate depiction of the place that love, loneliness, grief, and joy occupy at different stages of our lives and within our own family – a call to the heart and a timely reminder we are all as messy and remarkable as each other.
Adapted from the hit Viaplay Original “Älska mig,” created by Josephine Bornebusch, the show stars Hugo Weaving, Bojana Novakovic, William Lodder, Sarah Peirse, Heather Mitchell, Shalom Brune-Franklin, Celia Pacquola, and Bob Morley.
