About a Boy writer Nick Hornby’s new adaptation of Nina Stibbe’s award-winning book Love, Nina will begin later this month.
Starring Helena Bonham-Carter (Harry Potter, Suffragette) and Faye Marsay (Pride, Doctor Who), the five-part series is a fictionalised adaptation of author Nina Stibbe’s letters home to her sister.
Love, Nina starts at 9.30pm on Friday 20 May on BBC One.
Twenty years old and from Leicester, Nina (Faye Marsay) moves to North London in 1982, to care for the two young boys of a working single mother, George (Helena Bonham Carter), the editor of a London literary review.

Love, Nina is described as “a charming, laugh-out-loud culture clash drama series about a young nanny from Leicester finding her feet in 1980s London.”
Nick Hornby commented last year: “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.”
