Get ready for F*cking Adelaide, a new six part dramedy series coming to ABC iview. Starring Pamela Rabe, (Wentworth, Cosi), Tilda Cobham-Hervey (52 Tuesdays, Barracuda, The Kettering Incident, Hotel Mumbai), Kate Box (Rake, The Little Death), and Brendan McLean, the series sees three close but disparate siblings reunite in Adelaide, only to discover their mother is selling their childhood home. Their middle class freedoms and sense of security is rocked and they are forced to confront a past that none of them can let go of.
Each 12 minute episode is told through the unique point of view of one of the characters. The series is directed by Sophie Hyde, produced by Rebecca Summerton and Sophie Hyde and written by Matthew Cormack and Matt Vesely.
Hyde said “It’s a total delight for me to work with this stunning ensemble cast and to be creating this funny, and at times heartbreaking series in our hometown and alongside the crew we know and trust. It’s refreshing to reclaim the jokes about Adelaide and laugh at ourselves while utilising all the things we relish about this city and speaking to the experience of family and home. We are also thrilled to be partnering with our investors to create work for ABC’s ever more exciting digital platform ABC iview, which gives us the opportunity to be playful with the episodic form and allows audiences to watch whenever they want.”
F*cking Adelaide was commissioned via ABC and Screen Australia’s Long Story Short initiative, one of six successful projects drawn from 290 applicants. The series will debut in 2017.
