ITVX confirmed that HBO Max Original Love & Death will get its exclusive UK debut on the streaming platform this autumn.
The hotly anticipated series focuses on two church going couples, enjoying small town family life in Texas, until somebody picks up an axe. The cast includes Elizabeth Olsen, Jesse Plemons, Lily Rabe, Patrick Fugit, Elizabeth Marvel, Tom Pelphrey, Krysten Ritter and Keir Gilchrist.
The HBO Max Original is co-produced by Lionsgate. Executive producers: David E. Kelley (who is writing the series) through David E. Kelley Productions; Nicole Kidman and Per Saari through Blossom Films; Lesli Linka Glatter (who directs the first four and final episodes); Scott Brown and Megan Creydt through Texas Monthly; Matthew Tinker; Michael Klick and Helen Verno.
The limited series is inspired by the book “Evidence of Love: A True Story of Passion and Death in the Suburbs” and a collection of articles from Texas Monthly (“Love & Death in Silicon Prairie,” Part I & II).
ITV Head of Content Acquisitions Sasha Breslau said: “We are thrilled to bring this scabrous, gripping series to ITVX viewers in the UK; get ready to be totally hooked!”.
Alison Morris, SVP Television, Digital & Affiliate Distribution at Warner Bros. Discovery said: “HBO Max’s Love & Death is a great addition to the line-up of premium dramas based on real life stories on ITV and ITVX. I hope that UK audiences are going to be as fascinated with the twists and turns of this story as I am. David and Lesli have done a brilliant job of finding the humanity in this most extraordinary set of events, helped by stellar performances from an amazing cast.”
Love & Death will stream on ITVX in Autumn 2023.
