Netflix to Bow Interactive Rom-Com ‘Choose Love’

Netflix will stream its first interactive romantic comedy, Choose Love.

Directed by Stuart McDonald  (A Perfect Pairing, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”), the film stars Laura Marano (The Royal Treatment, The Perfect Date), Avan Jogia (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, Zombieland: Double Tap), Scott Michael Foster (“You,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) and Jordi Webber (Head High, “Power Rangers Ninja Steel”).

In the film, Cami Conway (Marano) has it all. She’s got the job she wants as a recording engineer and is headed towards engagement, marriage and kids with her boyfriend Paul (Foster). And yet, she feels something is missing. Is it just FOMO and the fear of commitment that goes with it? Or is she actually missing out on an even better career, perhaps the long abandoned singing career she once dreamed of? And is Paul the love of her life? What if it’s Rex Galier (Jogia), the sexy British rock star, who walks into her studio and becomes irrepressibly smitten? Or could it be Jack Menna (Webber), her first love, “the one that got away,” the idealistic world traveler, who returns home and is ready to rekindle their youthful passion? Cami faces a kaleidoscope of tempting but tough choices. What she chooses depends on the viewer.

Choose Love is the first rom-com to receive the interactive treatment at Netflix. Through the film’s many choice paths, the viewer decides what journey the main characters take over the course of this love story based on a variety of decisions made on their behalf. This leads to many potential storylines — even multiple endings — for every viewer to explore and create their own unique experience with these characters based on their decisions.

Choose Love joins Netflix’s interactive lineup, which also includes the upcoming series “Trivia Quest” and past titles such as Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, ​​”Cat Burglar,” “Headspace: Unwind Your Mind” and Animals on the Loose: A You vs. Wild Movie
