Sneak peek at 10's new comedy series MR BLACK
Meet Mr. Black. He’s No Mr. Right.
48-year-old Mr. Black (Stephen Curry) is a retired, old-school sports journalist, whose mortality is staring him in the face.
Mr. Black has a disease that is eroding his bones. He walks with a stick and rides an electric scooter.
He has lived a full life, but has no intention of going gently into the night – especially when there’s so much to be angry about.
And now because of his failing health, he is forced to move in with his daughter Angela and her sensitive boyfriend Fin, to receive extra care.
Game on! As far as Mr. Black’s concerned, Fin is soft and will have to go, so he joyfully sets about dismantling the new-age twenty-something.
What unfolds is a hilarious and relentless psychological arm-wrestle between a proud gen x-er and a bemused millennial where the winner gets to share a house with Angela and the loser moves out to never darken their doorstop again.
Created by multi award-winning writer, actor and producer Adam Zwar (Wilfred, Agony series), Mr. Black is a new Australian comedy series also starring Nadine Garner (The Doctor Blake Mysteries), Nick Russell (Winners & Losers), Sophie Wright (Kinky Boots) and Paul Denny (Lowdown).
