Around a million people were tuning in each week to watch Here come the Habib’s. It was the first original comedy commissioned by one of the free-to-air commercial networks in 15 years. Let’s hope the success leads to more local drama and comedy. There were loads of MCTV people involved last time and we are submitting talent once again.
With so many MCTV talent working on the first season of Here Come the Habib’s we are delighted to hear the news that it has been renewed for a second season. This was a bold move by Channel Nine to commission this new comedy and hopefully the success will spur them on further. It will mean more work for MCTV Talent when filming starts up again.
A risky move into comedy pays off with Nine greenlighting more of its new sitcom.
Were you one of the 30 MCTV people who were involved with the filming of Here Come the Habib’s? Did you spot yourself in the first episode that aired last night? If you didn’t see it, check it out online now.
Over a million viewers tuned in to the first episode last night. Seems like a pretty positive reception which could mean even more productions are filmed in Sydney in the coming year.
We are always looking for different faces, shapes, ethnicities and skills to fill the wide and varied roles needed by all the productions filming here in Sydney.
Brand new Australian comedy

MCTV talent had a ball working on this production and were even happier to have a little Christmas bonus in their bank account for the work they did.
This new series seems to be causing quite a lot of controversy on social media even before it has aired. As always there’s a variety of opinion on the Internet, some people are offended and others are in stitches of laughter. I guess we will all have to wait to see.
In case you missed it, Sydney is in the middle of a Television production boom. MCTV Talent have been involved in everything and anything that has been produced here. Combine that with all the blockbuster movies that are being filmed here and it’s a very exciting time to be involved in the industry.
SYDNEY is challenging Melbourne for Australia’s television capital tag, with a boom in local small screen productions adding extra sizzle to the city.
Here Come the Habib’s is coming soon. This month MCTV extras will be working on this new situation comedy about a family who moved first from Lebanon to Australia and then from Lakemba to Vaucluse. It’s by the same guys behind The Moodys so it should be a good laugh.
MCTV talent have worked on just about every TV series that is produced in Sydney. As you can imagine, there are a good variety of people required for these productions and yet there’s no experience required. We are always looking for people from a range of ethnic backgrounds, ages and a variety of looks to suit productions such as this.
It’s a second migration for the Habib family, first it was Lebanon to Australia, now Lakemba to Vaucluse. But not everyone is happy to see them, and soon the Habibs find themselves in conflict with their new next door neighbours.
