The ABC has announced the reboot of 1980s Aussie comedy classic ‘Mother and Son’ will premiere on ABCTV and iView on 23 August. The 8 part series was filmed in Sydney and stars Aussie comedians Denise Scott and Matt Okine.
Following a breakup from his long-suffering girlfriend, Dee (Andrea Demetriades), Arthur puts his future on hold to move back home with his widowed mother, Maggie. Arthur and his older sister, Robbie (Angela Nica Sullen) – arguably ‘the favourite’ – attempt to care for Maggie, who may recently have almost burnt down the kitchen, but still runs circles around her children!
If this trailer is anything to go by, the new series will be as well loved as the original. Well done to the 30 MCTV members who worked on this.
