BBC acquire Disney’s Love, Victor
September 22, 2023
The BBC has acquired all three seasons of US teen comedy-drama Love, Victor from Disney Entertainment.
The series – inspired by and set in the same world as the 2018 film Love, Simon – focuses on a new student at Creekwood High School, Victor (played by Michael Cimino). Episodes 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. All three seasons will air soon on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer
