One holiday house. Eight very different love stories.

Funny, moving and uplifting, Summer Love is an enchanting anthology series in which eight very different sets of people rent the same beachside holiday house and experience some incarnation of love. From the two couples who discover their friendship has reached its expiry date, and the gay couple who confront societal expectations versus what they really want, to the sisters who take time out to recharge but somehow manage to bring the chaos of their lives with them, the drama travels across gender, class and culture to deliver eight fresh, authentic and relatable stories.

With the house acting as the pivotal setting, Summer Love combines the feelings of hope, possibility, and escapism with the dreamy enchantment of the beach and the clumsy reality of people on holiday – from romance and family squabbles to sunburn and sand in the sheets.

Created by the award-winning comedy writers Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope (Upper Middle Bogan, Little Lunch), this charming series weaves warmth, humor and romance throughout each separate love story – whether it’s a love to be discovered, recovered, or let go.
