BINGE today announced the full cast for the new local original, Colin from Accounts, currently in production across Sydney.
Joining creators, writers and stars of the new Australian series, Patrick Brammall (No Activity and A Moody Christmas) and Harriet Dyer (Wakefield and The Invisible Man), is Helen Thomson (Rake, Elvis), Emma Harvie (Frayed, Diary of an Uber Driver), Genevieve Hegney (Young Rock, Doctor Doctor), Michael Logo (Love Me, Daryl in Why Are you Like This), and Tai Hara (Hyde and Seek, Home and Away).
An 8-episode comedy centred on Ashley (Dyer) and Gordon (Brammall), two single(ish), complex humans who are brought together by a car accident and an injured dog, Colin from Accounts is about flawed, funny people choosing each other and being brave enough to show their true self, scars and all, as they navigate life together.
The series is produced by Easy Tiger Productions and CBS Studios, with Rob Gibson and Ian Collie producing for Easy Tiger (Jack Irish, Rake, Doctor Doctor). Directors are Trent O’Donnell (No Activity and The Letdown), Matt Moore (The Great and Diary of an Uber Driver) and Madeleine Dyer (Sexy Herpes). Executive producers are Brammall, (Harriet) Dyer, O’Donnell, Alison Hurbert-Burns and Brian Walsh.
BINGE Executive Director, Alison Hurbert-Burns, said: “The team has assembled a stellar mix of local talent led by Patrick and Harriet, that will bring this story, packed with humour and plenty of heart, to life.
“We have had so much fun shooting this new original, Colin from Accounts, across Sydney suburbs including Marrickville, Leichhardt and Redfern and can’t wait to bring it to BINGE viewers later this year.”
Easy Tiger’s Rob Gibson and Ian Collie said: “With Patrick and Harriet at the heart of the show, it’s no surprise we were able to bring some of the best and funniest people in the business on board. And we’re really excited to introduce some extraordinary new faces to BINGE audiences.”
“We’re very grateful to our partners at BINGE and CBS Studios, who immediately saw the appeal of Colin from Accounts for their audiences in Australia and around the world, and also of course to Screen Australia and Screen NSW for their wonderful support.”
The series is distributed outside Australia and New Zealand by ViacomCBS Global Distribution Group.
The series commissioned for the Foxtel Group will be produced by Easy Tiger Productions and CBS Studios. It has major production funding from Screen Australia with support from Screen NSW.
