Cameras roll in Melbourne on Kitty Flanagan comedy series FISK

Produced by Vincent Sheehan (Operation Buffalo, The Kettering Incident) written and co-directed by Kitty Flanagan, Fisk also stars television favourite Julia Zemiro (Julia Zemiro’s Home Delivery, RocKwiz) and celebrated comedians Marty Sheargold, Aaron Chen and Glenn Butcher as well as award winning actor John Gaden.

Starring Flanagan as Helen Tudor-Fisk, a contract lawyer who is forced to take a job at a shabby suburban law firm specialising in wills and probate, Fisk is a fast-paced workplace sitcom that taps into the everyday world of inheritances and squabbling relatives.

Kitty Flanagan says

“This is the dream. My own show with all my favourite people both in front of the camera and behind it too. I’m thrilled to be making this in Melbourne for the ABC. We have such amazing, creative people in Australia, the more local content we can turn out, the better.”

Todd Abbott, ABC Head of Comedy says

“Kitty Flanagan is, quite simply, one of the funniest humans alive, and a show created by and starring her is long overdue. Every page of these scripts is laugh-out-loud funny, and the cast and crew that she’s pulled together guarantee this series is going to be a ripper. What a treat for all of us.”

Production Credit: A Porchlight Films production for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.  With major investment from Screen Australia and financed with support from Film Victoria.  Written by Kitty Flanagan and Penny Flanagan. Co-directed by Kitty Flanagan and Tom Peterson.  Produced by Vincent Sheehan.  Executive Producers Greg Sitch, Liz Watts, Anita Sheehan. ABC Executive Producers Todd Abbott and Brett Sleigh.

Fisk will air on ABC TV and iview in 2021
