Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey preview
Join WA-born comedian Judith Lucy in a brand new series as she is on a quest to discover something to believe in.
The 6×30-minute series – Judith Lucy's Spiritual Journey – is split into two types: documentary and scripted flashbacks, and was filmed in Australia and India over about seven weeks in October and November last year.
Produced by Todd Abbott (Rove Live, The Dream With Roy & H.G.), the show was financed by Film Victoria and ABC.
Each episode – heavily cut down by ABC editor Chris Branagan (The Librarians) due to the massive amount of footage shot – features the comedian looking for answers that she’s pondered over the years such as ‘why are we here’? and ‘what happens when we die’?
In the process, she spoke to priests and nuns, psychics (including John Edward), Buddhists, Aboriginal elders as well as friends – such as fellow comedians Frank Woodley and Greg Fleet, who all appear in the series.
Judith Lucy's Spiritual Journey will air Wednesday, July 27, at 9.30pm on ABC1.
