Nick Hornby’s Love, Nina premieres on BBC-1 May 20

Published

Nick Hornby’s fictionalised television adaptation of Nina Stibbe’s bestselling book,  Love, Nina is a 5×30 minute series for BBC One. It premieres on Friday 20 May at 9.30pm.
Twenty years old and from Leicester, Nina (Faye Marsay) moves to North London in 1982, to care for the two young boys of a working single mother, George (Helena Bonham Carter), the editor of a London literary review.

In the opening episode Nina (Faye Marsay) is interviewed by George (Helena Bonham Carter) and meets Max (Harry Webster) and Joe (Ethan Rouse) for the first time at Gloucester Crescent.

Love, Nina is Oscar-nominated screenwriter and acclaimed novelist Nick Hornby’s first drama for television.

Nick Hornby says: “Love, Nina has already attained the status of a modern classic, and I am so happy that I’ve been given the opportunity to adapt it. We want to make a series that is as charming, funny and delightful as Nina Stibbe’s glorious book.”

The adaptation of letters home to her sister, Love Nina is the story of a 19 year-old girl, who leaves Leicester to work as a nanny in London: charming, unexpected, and laugh-out-loud funny. A culture clash comedy and a loving hymn to family and friendship in all their chaotic glory.

Jamie Laurenson, executive producer, See-Saw Films (the production company making the series for the BBC) added: “Nick has an unrivalled ability to illuminate the moving and the hilarious in the everyday. Having him on board to adapt Nina’s warm, wild and incredibly funny letters is a dream come true.”

Love, Nina, reunites Bafta award-winning Helena Bonham Carter with Toast director S.J. Clarkson, who returns to UK television after working on some of the best of American television, directing the opening episodes of Marvel and Netflix’s upcoming show AKA Jessica Jones’, starring Kristen Ritter and most recently Vinyl for Martin Scorsese and HBO.

S.J. says: ”It’s a joy to be working with Helena again and even more so to be collaborating on such wonderful material and with such a talented ensemble.”

The Belfast Telegraph has an interesting article with Helena about the series and playing editor George “”I could sense that she probably felt a bit ambivalent about being played,” Bonham Carter concedes. “Although I did say I would only do it if I got her blessing, and if I could keep the swearing in. I got the first, but I didn’t really get the second!”

Faye Marsay and director Clarkson talked about the series at the Berlin Film Festival recently.

The book itself was chosen as book of the week by Radio 4 for Christmas 2013.
