Love Me, a Warner Bros. International Television Australia Production for the Foxtel Group, with major production investment from Screen Australia and financed with support from Film Victoria, is an authentic and intimate depiction of the place that love, loneliness, grief, and joy occupy at different stages of our lives and within our own family – a call to the heart and a timely reminder we’re all as messy and remarkable as each other.
