ABCTV has just commissioned two new live action series, Parent Up and the PM’s Daughter.
A comedy action series for 8-13 year olds, Parent Up follows Yu Na and Min Park, who want more excitement in their lives. However, they don’t realise just how crazy their lives will become when they discover their once unremarkable parents are actually international spies and have disappeared in suspicious circumstances.
The PMs’ Daughter tells the story of Catalina Parkes Pérez (Cat to her friends) who, like any other teenager, wants to fight the powers that be. There’s just one complication: her mother is the Prime Minister of Australia. The show will be written and produced by a dedicated team including Tristram Baumber, Lou Sanz, Alice Willison (above).
Both series are scheduled for 10 episodes will join other excellent, locally produced ABC kids programs, such as the award winning Hardball.
