Another helping of It’s a Date?

20 February, 2014 by Don Groves

The ABC is looking to commission a second series of It’s a Date, the narrative comedy created by Peter Helliar.

Brendan Dahill, Head of Programming for ABC1 and ABC2, rates It’s a Date and Upper Middle Bogan as the broadcaster’s stand-out comedy hits of last year. The shows aired back-to-back on Thursday nights.

Gristmill Productions’ Wayne Hope and Robyn Butler are producing another eight episodes of Upper Middle Bogan.

Dahill says he is talking to the producers of It’s a Date, Princess Pictures, about a second series. The show explores the tension, expectation and complication of finding true love, with each episode following two self-contained dates as they head toward desire or disaster.

It had an all-star cast including Asher Keddie, Kate Ritchie, John Wood, Lisa McCune, Stephen Curry, Sibylla Budd, Shane Jacobson, Sophie Lowe, Nadine Garner, Pia Miranda and Helliar.

Helliar was lead writer with a team of Phil Lloyd, Jess Harris, Ryan Shelton, Justin Hamilton, Tony Moclair, Lawrence Mooney, Steven Gates and Kate Langbroek.
