Fresh faces lead the cast of the ABC and Fremantle Australia's children's comedy-drama 'The PM's Daughter', now shooting in Canberra.
'Blaze', 'How To Please A Woman', 'Sissy' and 'Sweet As' will contend for the best original feature prize at this year’s AWGIE Awards, while 'Mrs Harris Goes to Paris', 'The Stranger' and 'The Drover's Wife The Legend of Molly Johnson' are up for the adapted gong. 'The Newsreader' leads in television with two nominations alongside 'Total Control', 'Firebite', 'Bump' and 'Heartbreak High'.
The ABC has commissioned two new live-action children's series, Aquarius Films' 'Parent Up' and Fremantle Australia's 'The PM’s Daughter'.
With the future of Australian drama under the microscope in wake of relaxed local content quotas, there was always going to be added interest in the ABC's 2022 slate.
This year's AACTA Award for Best Film will be a contest between Baz Luhrmann’s 'Elvis', George Miller’s 'Three Thousand Years of Longing', Leah Purcell’s 'The Drover's Wife The Legend of Molly Johnson', Thomas M. Wright's 'The Stranger', Western Sydney anthology feature 'Here Out West', and Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes' horror 'Sissy'.
New seasons of children’s series, 'The PM’s Daughter' and 'Little J & Big Cuz' are among the eight projects that will share in $5.5 million of production funding from Screen Australia
The ABC will dole out a healthy dose of comedy nostalgia to audiences in 2023 in the form of a reimagined version of classic sitcom 'Mother and Son', as well as fresh episodes of the bureaucratic comedy 'Utopia'.
