New York, NY – September 13, 2023 – Sony Music Entertainment today premiered You Had Me at Hello, a new podcast hosted by Taye Diggs where ordinary people share their soul-stirring stories of romance.

Diggs, the revered star of stage and screen, takes listeners on a journey through enchanting narratives of the heart. From forbidden love and second chances to heartbreak and revenge – one thing is for certain: these are real stories by real people. Some of the featured stories include:
Dennis & Karen from Minnesota:
In 1950s Minnesota, the high school sweethearts, Dennis and Karen, are forced apart when she falls pregnant. They decide to give up the baby for adoption and the couple go their separate ways. 50 years later, Dennis decides to track down Karen.
Stephanie & Petter from Norway & Chicago:
In the 1980s, Petter (from Norway) saw an advertisement for American pen pals and he starts to write letters with Stephanie. They have an instant connection. As life throws them one curveball after another, their dream of meeting is put on hold for years. That dream slips further away when Stephanie gets engaged to another man. But that’s not the end of their love story.
Lori & Brendan from Chicago:
As wedding planner Lori approaches 40, she wonders whether she will ever meet the love of her life and finally be the one to walk down the aisle. After years of disastrous dating, she nearly gives up. She gives it one last try on a dating app. There’s a match; Las Vegas party boy Brendan.
Jeff & Kelly from Iowa:
When Kelly dumps her high-school boyfriend three weeks before prom – she has one final favor, would Jeff still be her date? He agrees – but soon hatches a plan to sabotage Kelly’s prom night. After years of holding onto resentment for his first love and first heartbreak, Jeff meets Kelly at a school reunion.
