In a survival-of-the-fiercest, two twenty-something First Nations millennials Casey and Belle decide it’s time to call out their racist friends. They think it could cause a revolution, but instead it causes a downgrade in lifestyle.
Supported by Screen Queensland’s Screen Finance fund, the five-part ABC and iview comedy All My Friends Are Racist premieres on Tuesday 24 August at 10:15 pm.
The series, which filmed for three weeks in Brisbane, is a Maximo Entertainment and Hoodlum Entertainment production, with Executive Producers and Traditional Owners Leah Purcell AM and Bain Stewart of Oombarra Productions.
“We are so excited about All My Friends Are Racist going out on ABC and iview this August,” Ms Purcell and Mr Stewart said.
“This is a series has been with us for over four years now, so it’s fantastic to have it finally roll out as a fully blown, smart, cutting-edge piece of comedy with a great cast, great production values and great partners in Liliana Munoz of Maximo Entertainment and the teams at Hoodlum Entertainment, ABC TV, Screen Queensland and Screen Australia,” they said.
Executive Producers Nathan Mayfield and Tracey Robertson of Hoodlum said the production engaged First Nations and diverse screen talent in the early stages of their career.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the talented team of emerging creatives, crew and actors that have brought All My Friends Are Racist to life.
“Fresh, funny, queer and unapologetic First Nations storytelling, All My Friends Are Racist packs a heartfelt punch that we can’t wait to share with national audiences,” they said.
