The ABC has confirmed a March premiere date for the new six-part comedy series Fisk.

Fisk is a 6 x 30 min comedy series created, written and directed by – and starring – one of Australia’s favourite comedians, Kitty Flanagan. 

Flanagan stars as Helen Tudor-Fisk, a corporate contract lawyer forced to take a job at a shabby suburban law firm specialising in wills and probate.

As well as the incomparable key cast including Julia Zemiro, Marty Sheargold, Aaron Chen, John Gaden and Glenn Butcher, the laugh-out-loud series is filled with a who’s who of Australian comedians and actors, including Alison Whyte, Glenn Robbins, Debra Lawrance, Denise Scott, Sam Pang, Georgina Naidu, Bert La Bonte,
Ed Kavalee, Collette Mann, Dave O’Neil and Marg Downey, just to name a few.

Helen (Flanagan) is a contracts lawyer who is not good with people. When her personal and professional lives implode spectacularly in Sydney, Helen runs home to Melbourne and takes a job at Gruber & Gruber, a small suburban law firm.

Helen is brought in to replace Roz Gruber (Zemiro), a recently-suspended solicitor who has temporarily appointed herself the office manager. No longer allowed to sit in with clients, Roz now has nothing else to do but get all up in Helen’s business.

Ray Gruber (Sheargold), Roz’s brother, hires Helen in a fit of laziness but also because Helen is a ‘mature lady’ which has proven to be the preferred option for clients who are grieving. Unfortunately, Helen is not that kind of mature lady.

Roz is always lurking, Ray is always skiving off and there’s often a scuffle in reception that Helen is forced to take control of. With the help of the idiosyncratic probate clerk, George (Chen), Helen attempts to find her feet in the messy world of probate; where the clients are at their most irrational and it’s never as simple as just dividing up the money.

Fisk premieres Wednesday 17 March at 9pm on ABC TV and iview.
