ECCHO RIGHTS TO REPRESENT LOVE ME WORLDWIDE

Eccho Rights have agreed a deal with Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) Sweden to represent Swedish comedy drama LOVE ME worldwide, one of the most successful titles coming out of Scandinavia this year.

Premiering on NENT Group’s streaming service Viaplay on Oct 11th, the series has received not only critical acclaim but rapidly rose to become the best performing drama to have ever been launched on the platform. It is written and directed by Josephine Bornebusch, one of the most prolific Swedish actresses famous for her performances in “Solsidan” and “Welcome to Sweden”. In addition to having created the show, she also stars in the main role. Sverrir Gudnason (Borg vs McEnroe) and Gustav Lindh (Queen of Hearts) form part of the cast as well.

Ahead of its premiere, the series was already renewed for a second season with filming currently underway. LOVE ME furthermore forms part of the lineup for the C21 International Drama Summit this week in London with a screening set for Thursday, Dec 5th, at 13.30, Kings Place.

“I am very happy to partner with Eccho Rights on the distribution of LOVE ME and look forward to the show reaching audiences across the globe. This warm and humorous series offers true-to-life characters that lend themselves to a feeling that this story is taking place here and now. We see a great potential for it to travel very well,” says Johan Hedman, Head of Drama at WBITVP Sweden.
