Love, Nina is a 2016 British comedy-drama starring Faye Marsay and Helena Bonham Carter. Adapted by Nick Hornby from Nina Stibbe's book Love, Nina: Despatches from Family Life, the series received its debut on BBC One on 20 May 2016 and ran for five episodes. Set in 1982, the series tells the story of Nina (Marsay), a 20-year-old girl from Leicester who moves to Primrose Hill, London to work as a nanny for single mother George (Bonham Carter).[1]

It is based on the experiences of working in the household of Mary-Kay Wilmers, editor of the London Review of Books. The two boys in the series are based on her sons with filmmaker Stephen Frears; the grown-up Sam Frears plays a neighbour.[2] On 15 May 2017, it was made available to stream on Netflix in the UK.[3]
