Closer is proud to announce that its new web series FUCKING ADELAIDE has been selected by Screen Australia and the ABC to receive production funding via the Long Story Short Program.
It means, along with four other great projects, Closer will be making a short form digital drama series for ABC iView.
"FUCKING ADELAIDE is a dramedy following self-confessed failure Eli and his annoyingly optimistic sister Kitty as they return home to their dysfunctional family in Adelaide, a place Eli said he’d only ever visit for Christmas and funerals."
The project will be directed by Sophie Hyde (52 TUESDAYS) and written by Matthew Cormack and Matt Vesely from a story by Sophie Hyde, Matthew Cormack and Bryan Mason. Bec Summerton will produce.
We'll be heading into production soon, and can't wait to get cracking on our first ever episodic drama series!
Also, we totally <3 Adelaide. We ARE ADELAIDE.
