Press Release from ABC TV
Production has started in Melbourne on a new six-part series, written by and starring Australia’s favourite funny lady – Judith Lucy.
Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey follows Judith’s very personal path from devoutly religious child to determined young atheist to an adult searching for something to believe in.
ABC TV Head of Arts and Entertainment Amanda Duthie says “Judith Lucy is one of Australia’s iconic comedians. Her unique style resonates with people of all ages. We are absolutely thrilled to be sharing her spiritual quest with our audience”
Judith says “I’ve reached a point in my career where people still recognise me, they just no longer know why or how. Recently someone asked me if I worked in an egg factory. So yes, I’m very excited about doing a show on the ABC.”
Produced by Todd Abbott and directed by Brendan Fletcher and Judith’s Late Show colleague, Tony Martin, Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey will put faith and beliefs, those often avoided subjects, firmly on the table for discussion and it will put Judith Lucy back on television where she belongs. Hallejujah!
Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey will air on ABC1 in 2011.
Production Credits: Produced by Todd Abbott for Pretty Good Productions. Written by Judith Lucy. Directed by Brendan Fletcher and Tony Martin. Executive Producer Todd Abbott and ABC TV Executive Producer Sophia Zachariou. ABC Head of Arts and Entertainment Amanda Duthie.
