Love My Way is a Logie Award winning and critically acclaimed Australian television drama series. It won the AFI award for Best Television Drama Series for each of its three seasons.
Love My Way was about a group of thirty-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.
Produced by John Edwards and Claudia Karvan, 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 and The Secret Life of Us: both sharing a star, as well as significant creative talent. However, the series is not a continuation of Secret Life, although it does share some thematic concerns.
