Production on a new six-part romantic drama series for streaming service Binge has begun in Melbourne this week. Love Me will star Hugo Weaving in a story about ‘modern love experienced by different family members at three distinct times of life,’ according to Screen Australia.
It is based on a Swedish series, Älsak Mig, created by Josephine Bornebusch, and the show will presumably be given a distinctly Victorian flavour by director Emma Freeman (Glitch, Stateless). The writing team is composed of Leon Ford (Offspring), Adele Vuko (At Home Alone Together), and Blake Ayshford (Mystery Road), led by Alison Bell (The Letdown). Production will be taking place in metropolitan Melbourne and across regional Victoria.
