Cult Australian comedy FAT PIZZA is back in business on 7MATE

Get set for a saucy season topped with celebrity cameos, burnouts and bad Tinder dates.

FAT PIZZA, the award-winning action comedy about the perils of life as a pizza delivery guy is opening shop with a new season on 7MATE.

Having developed its urban street humour and cutting slapstick satire over six seasons and two feature films, creator and series lead, comedian PAULY FENECH says fans can expect “political incorrectness at its best” when the original FAT PIZZA crew return in the upcoming season, FAT PIZZA: BACK IN BUSINESS on 7MATE. 

“FAT PIZZA is one of the boldest Aussie comedies on television,” says Fenech of the multicultural and multi-generational program featuring some of Australia’s sharpest upcoming comedians. “Get set for bigger and cheesier storylines straight from the headlines. Social media trolls, get ready to rumble!” 

Fenech reprises his lead role of Pauly Falzoni, former pizza delivery boy now boss, trying to rebuild the infamous Fat Pizza restaurant in the notorious suburb of Hashfield.

Struggling to get his business up and running, Pauly finds himself fighting with councils, street gangs, politicians and a new foe, the world of app driven delivery services.

With underpaid workers and a pizza chef struggling with English, Pauly’s business dreams quickly turn into a living nightmare.

Reuniting with Fenech in the new season are fan favourites MARIA VENUTI (Mama), PAUL NAKAD (Sleek) and JOHNNY BOXER (Bobo). Housos characters Shazza (ELLE DAWE) Vanessa (VANESSA DAVIS) and Kev the Kiwi (KEV TAUMATA)will also feature.

The series also features a stellar guest cast including; BRENDAN JONES, JEAN KITTSON, ANTHONY MUNDINE, ANGRY ANDERSON, HOLLY BRISLEY, MELISSA TKAUTZ, CHRIS FRANKLIN, GARRY WHO and GEORGE KAPINIARIS.

New characters introduced this series include; Chef Jin Pin (JOE JUNE), Jayden, the proud bogan Aussie (PETER CHIDIAC) and Mexican rapper Tuco Swarez (MERO VAGO D’CORA).

FAT PIZZA: BACK IN BUSINESS is produced by Antichocko Productions and will premiere on 7MATE in 2019
