Premise[edit] Set in Sydney, Love My Way
Love My Way
was about a group of 30-somethings dealing with the ups and downs of life. The series revolves around an extended family unit - Frankie Paige and Charlie Jackson are the separated parents of Lou, and Frankie also lives with Charlie's brother, Tom. As the series began, Charlie's new wife Julia is about to have their first child. Frankie's mother, Di and Charlie's mother, Brenda, and father, Gerry, also have a strong presence in the ongoing story, as does Julia's ex-lover Howard, who enters into a relationship with Frankie. Production[edit] Produced by John Edwards and Claudia Karvan, Love My Way
Love My Way
starred Karvan, Sam Worthington, Dan Wyllie, Asher Keddie, Brendan Cowell, and Alex Cook. As the program was made for subscription television in Australia, it contained stronger material than most Australian programs: regular swearing, drug use and sexual references. When the series was launched, much was made of the connection between Love My Way
Love My Way
and The Secret Life of Us: both sharing a star, as well as significant creative talent (Edwards and Perske both were involved in Secret Life, as were series writers like Tony McNamara). However, the series is not a continuation of Secret Life, although it does share some thematic concerns. The star of the series, Claudia Karvan, is also a co-producer, along with having written for the series. Brendan Cowell, who appears as Tom, also worked as script writer for two episodes of Series 1 and three episodes of Series 2. On first airing, the theme song originally by The Psychedelic Furs, this time covered by Magic Dirt, played over the title sequence. Some scenes were filmed on location at the infamously dangerous Cromwell Park. Subscription television[edit] The series premiered on FOX8
FOX8
on 22 November 2004 during the late summer months when commercial TV is in a non-ratings period.[1] During the second season it was moved to W. Channel. In 2007, for its third series, it screened on Showtime. Foxtel has been criticised for moving the show to different channels to encourage viewing of the W. Channel and then for moving the program to Showtime which is not included in the basic package of subscription television in Australia.[citation needed] Cast[edit] Main cast[edit]
