Director: Kate McCartney

What exactly happened on The Edge of the Bush? Something so bad it has driven a wedge through the Watts family and torn their calisthenics empire apart. The Edge of the Bush is Catherine Tate meets Bloodline. It provides all the drama and mystery of a Netflix-style, binge-watch series combined with multiple characters played by one comedian, Anne Edmonds. Edmonds will play four members of the family who are estranged from each other and who don't meet face to face until the climactic final episode: John, Karen, Dusty and Rebecca. The show will shot in a sitcom format, and the appearance of these characters will be subtler than traditional sketch comedy shows to create a believable drama. Over six eight-minute episodes, the series traces each characters journey towards reuniting with the rest of the family and gradually reveals the mystery of what happened in their childhood to drive them to such dysfunction.

Produced by
Producer: Nicole Minchin

"The best Australian sketch comedy series since The Wedge. The wedge was great though, but we just reckon we'll be better. No disrespect to Chris Lilley or whoever was on the wedge.

This is an all Melbourne show"

Producers: Diane Haddon, Sara Richardson

Interwoven with a killer soundtrack, this two-part mini-series touches on themes of celebrity, damnation and redemption. It was a wild ride being rock stars in the swinging 60's. And in their pursuit of success the members of the band each struggled with their own sense of self and the loss of identity that comes with overwhelming fame. But in the end they came to understand that though they were all from different countries, the sum of the musical parts was quintessentially Australian. This is a story with powerful contemporary relevance.
