WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Loosely modeled on Shakespeare's Measure for Measure, LoveCourt is an irreverent look at what happens when the Book of Love collides with the Book of Rules. It's been a few years and the champagne in Justin and Marianne's marriage has grown a little flat. He is a dedicated human resources professional in a large corporation. She is a professor of medieval studies at the local college. While investigating a charge brought against a mid-level manager, Nick, by his secretary, Nadine, Justin becomes infatuated with Nick's sister, Gianella, while meantime, Marianne is falling for one of her students, Danny. Company policy and school policy are banished to the sidelines as the wayward couples succumb to Cupid's merry dance. But what happens when the music stops? The modern "rule of rules" is ironically juxtaposed against the legendary Courts of Love of the medieval queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, courts in which "romance was law."
