Rarely does this site draw attention to a replay series, but Love My Way has proven so popular with viewers, that it’s worth mentioning the series will get a re-screening on the W Channel from its very first episode this Friday night.
The series starring Claudia Karvan first hit our screens in 2004 and has built up a reputation as possibly the finest local drama of the last ten years.
Three series of the Foxtel series were made, leaving devoted fans desperate for more. But it was not to be. While producer John Edwards went on to make Tangle and Rush, Karvan is working on Spirited for the Pay TV network.
So far the highly-awarded series has yet to air on Free to Air television.
One day you wake up and you’re in your thirties. How’d that happen? Still semi-broke, still negotiating with your ex about your daughter, still wondering what you’re going to do when you grow up.
Frankie, 31 (Claudia Karvan), is a tempestuous ball of mad life; a painter who also illustrates for a living at a large daily newspaper. She lives with Tom, (Brendan Cowell) occasional depressive and cook in the local rehabilitation hospital and Lou (Alex Cook), her 8-year-old jazz-dancing daughter.
Just down the road but in a much nicer house, that has a mortgage not a landlord, lives Charlie, 35 (Dan Wyllie), architect, surfer, emotionally stunted and Lou’s father. He’s Frankie’s ex and Tom’s brother.
Charlie’s remarried to Julia, (Asher Keddie) a 30-something woman with firm dreams about her life that are about to come true and scare the shit out of her.
Love My Way is an exploration of the love that binds us, the relationships that define us and the dreams of grown ups.
It starts Friday January 8th at 7.30pm on W.
