The BBC has acquired all three seasons (28 x 30) of the American teen comedy-drama “Love, Victor” from Disney Entertainment.
The first season (10 x 30) features Michael Cimino (known for “Never Have I Ever”), Rachel Hilson (from “Red, White & Royal Blue”), Anthony Turpel (of “The Bold and The Beautiful”), Bebe Wood (from “The New Normal”), Mason Gooding (in “Scream VI”), and Ana Ortiz (famous for “Ugly Betty”). Created by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, “Love, Victor” draws inspiration from and is set in the same world as the 2018 film “Love, Simon.”
“Love, Victor” centres around Victor (played by Michael Cimino), a new student at Creekwood High School. The series chronicles his journey of self-discovery, as he grapples with challenges at home and his sexual orientation. When high school becomes particularly daunting, he turns to Simon (portrayed by Nick Robinson, the star of the original “Love, Simon” film) for guidance.
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.
