‘Queen of Oz’ is a 6-part, 30-minute comedy show to be filmed in Sydney, commissioned by the BBC in the UK and ABC locally. Starring Catherine Tate (pictured) it sees the King abdicate his Aussie throne and install his wayward royal daughter.
Princess Georgiana (Tate) is the black sheep of a fictional British Royal Family. A PR disaster, she’s spent her spoilt, party-girl life plastered over the tabloids. On the back of her latest scandal her father, the King, makes the unprecedented move of abdicating his Australian throne in favour of his daughter. It is hoped that giving her some real responsibility will finally be the making of her – and if it isn’t, at least shipping her off keeps her 10,000 miles away from London.
Accompanied by a useless entourage, Queen Georgiana of Australia goes kicking and screaming to a country she has zero interest in beyond the Hemsworth Brothers!
Good luck to everyone who has been submitted for this one so far. More to come.
