No Activity 2016 series - publisher film/TV detective humour

'An improvised comedy that follows two detectives on a stakeout, waiting for the action to unfold – a look at what happens when nothing is happening. The narrative juxtaposes a snail’s-paced crime story with the rapidly expanding personal stories of the two detectives as they riff on the oddities of life, work, love, family, hopes, regrets and everything in between.'

Here Come the Habibs! 2016 series - publisher film/TV humour

'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. The O'Neills are Vaucluse royalty - old money and proud of it. They're extremely uncomfortable with goats and chickens, shisha pipes and people of Mediterranean appearance, but the Habibs can't understand what all the fuss is about. One family want to stay, the other family want them gone. Here Come The Habibs brings a fresh comic perspective to multicultural Australia.'

Offspring 2010 series - publisher film/TV

'Born out of the telemovie of the same name, Offspring is a contemporary drama series about Nina Proudman, a thirtysomething obstetrician and her fabulously messy family. Following the Proudman family's adventures searching for love, fulfillment and balance in the chaos of modern life, Offspring is about the life forces that drive us all: love, sex, babies, food and music. Stylistically fresh and visually exciting, Offspring mixes conventional narrative drama with flashbacks, graphic animation and fantasy sequences, showcasing the vibrant world of Fitzroy, Melbourne, where Nina and the extended Proudman family go about their unpredictable daily lives.'
