BBC Three has acquired the UK rights to Australian short-form series 600 Bottles Of Wine after striking a deal with international distributor Escapade Media. The four-part series will be available on BBC Three (via iPlayer) from Sunday May 27th at 10am.
Based on Grace Rouvray’s blog, 600 Bottles of Wine tells the story of Claire who is flung back into the dating scene when she breaks up with her long-term boyfriend. When Claire has a one-night-stand with advertising manager Pat and feels a genuine connection that goes far beyond that, she turns to her friends to help establish where she stands in the relationship. The short-form series stars Grace Rouvray and Angus McLaren
“It’s a real pleasure to bring 600 Bottles of Wine to BBC Three”, said the BBC’s Head of Programme Acquisition Sue Deeks, who acquired 600 Bottles Of Wine for BBC Three alongside channel Controller Damian Kavanagh. “Grace Rouvray is a fantastic new voice and her fresh, funny series will be every bit as relatable and entertaining to audiences in the UK as in Australia.”
