Adapted from Mona Kasten’s bestselling novel Save Me, the show follows the modern love story of James Beaufort (Damian Hardung) and Ruby Bell (Harriet Herbig-Matten), “an upper-class boy and a working-class girl in a world of glamor, prestige, secrets, and drama,” per the official synopsis.

“When Ruby unwittingly witnesses an explosive secret at Maxton Hall private school, the arrogant millionaire heir James Beaufort has to deal with the quick-witted scholarship student for better or worse,” it continues. “From that point on, the handsome student tries to buy Ruby’s silence. Although the two come from different worlds, they will soon risk everything to be together.”

Deadline was first to report the story.
