Nick Hornby’s adaptation of Nina Stibbe’s award-winning book Love, Nina.

It’s a joy, like having a spy in an extraordinary North London world of writers and film directors and academics … no, maybe not spy, because that suggests they’re the enemy and they’re not – it’s very affectionate.The Guardian

Inspired by Nina Stibbe’s book, Love, Nina is a fictionalized adaptation of Nina’s letters home to her sister: a charming, laugh-out-loud culture clash drama series about a young nanny from Leicester finding her feet in 1980s London. It celebrates family and friendship in all its chaotic glory.
Nick Hornby said of his first drama written for television: “Nina Stibbe’s book Love, Nina has already established itself as a much-loved piece of comic writing and I love it. Her observations and worldview were the inspiration for a show that we think captures the same spirit. It’s been a joy to write and we’re thrilled with the quality of our cast.”
