“I am delighted to have enticed Chris Lilley and producer Laura Waters to Queensland,” the Premier said.
“The series will employ up to 250 Queensland cast and extras, plus around 100 Queensland crew.”
The new series comes to Queensland as part of the Queensland Government’s $50 million Production attraction strategy, which has already attracted major film and television productions including Thor: Ragnarok, Aquaman, Tidelands and Harrow.
“Queensland’s continued ability to attract high-quality film and television production is a testament to our local screen industry,” the Premier said.
Chris Lilley and Laura Waters have already produced five successful and hilarious television series including We Can Be Heroes, Summer Heights High, Angry Boys, Ja’mie: Private School Girl and Jonah From Tonga.
