LOVE, VICTOR: BBC ACQUIRES AMERICAN COMEDY DRAMA FOR BBC THREE
The BBC has acquired all three seasons (28 x 30) of American teen comedy-drama Love, Victor from Disney Entertainment.
Season one (10 x 30) stars Michael Cimino (Never Have I Ever), Rachel Hilson (Red, White & Royal Blue), Anthony Turpel (The Bold and The Beautiful), Bebe Wood (The New Normal), Mason Gooding (Scream VI), Ana Ortiz (Ugly Betty).
Created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, Love, Victor is inspired by and set in the same world as the 2018 film Love, Simon.
Love, Victor focuses on a new student at Creekwood High School, Victor (Michael Cimino). The series follows his journey of self-discovery: facing challenges at home and struggling with his sexual orientation.
He reaches out to Simon (played by Nick Robinson, star of the original Love, Simon film) when it seems too difficult for him to navigate his way through high school.
Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition says: “Love, Victor is a heartfelt, funny and nuanced coming-of-age story, beautifully portrayed by a winning and relatable cast.”
Love, Victor is produced by Temple Hill Entertainment, No Helmet Productions, The Walk-Up Company and 20th Television.
