Australia -Screen Australia announced its support of seven television dramas and four feature film projects. In total, $8.8 million in funding will be allocated to a range of screen stories, which in turn will trigger production to the value of $63.5 million. The slate includes brand new dramas for SBS and Network Ten and a new film from brothers Clayton and Shane Jacobson, who will reunite to co-star in a follow-up to their 2006 comedy hit Kenny.
Rising talents Ellie Beaumont and Drew Proffitt are the writers, producers and executive producers behind new SBS thriller drama Dead Lucky from Subtext Pictures. The four part series follows experienced detective Grace Gibbs and trainee Charlie Fung, who are begrudgingly partnered together in the wake of a homicide to track down a killer with whom they both share a history. The show marks Beaumont’s first foray into television producing, and is also produced by Diane Haddon, directed by David Caesar , and executive produced by Nina Stevenson and Greg Sitch .
Two Network Ten dramas have received production investment funding – Endemol Shine’s family drama Sisters and season two of Playmaker Media’s romantic comedy drama The Wrong Girl.
