Louise Lives Large
Louise Lives Large, commissioned by Irelandís RT…, Canadaís Family Channel and Belgiumís Ketnet will be launching sales at Kidscreen Summit. The market takes place in San Diego from February 4th - 7th, 2024.

Aimed at 9–13-year-olds, Louise Lives Large is produced by Tailored Films (Ireland), Storyhouse (Belgium), and Vérité Films (Canada). Filmed on location in Ireland, it features a cast of emerging young stars, including Beth Fallon as Louise and Aimee Kennedy as Jess.

Louise Lives Large follows the journey of newly cancer-free teen Louise Edgar as she embarks on a mission to make up for lost time, completing the items on her ‘Live Large List’. With the help of her new pal and school outsider, Jess, Louise starts to tackle her list one item at a time.

Created and written by Carol Walsh, Louise Lives Large is produced by Tailored Films’ Julianne Forde and Mairtín de Barra, Maarten Schmidt of Storyhouse, Vérité Films’ Virginia Thompson and Jeremy Prober, and co-produced by Xavier Rombaut of Polar Bear. The series is set for delivery in March 2024.

WildBrain is coming on board to handle global sales (excl. Ireland and Belgium), expanding its distribution slate of compelling live-action drama for tweens and teens for the brand-new 8×24’ series.

“Who hasn’t felt like they were on the outside at some stage?” said Julianne Forde of Tailored Films. “It’s part of the school experience. We wanted to create a show based around this concept of feeling left behind and counteracting that with a protagonist who wanted to take control of her life. Show creator Carol Walsh personally experienced being out of school for a prolonged period of time due to illness. From this starting point we developed this series, which has an empowering message about resilience.”

Louise Lives Large is financed with the support of Screen Ireland, Coimisiún na Meán, the Government of Ireland, Creative Europe, the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF), the Belgian Tax Shelter, the Flanders Tax Shelter, Ontario Creates, and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit.
