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.

Charlotte Moore, Controller BBC One says: “It’s exciting to announce two new voices coming to BBC One. Nick Hornby is one of Britain’s most in demand and talented writers, adapting Nina Stibbe’s best-selling book.”
