Australian superstars Mandy McElhinney (Love Child, House of Hancock, Paper Giants: Magazine Wars, 'Rhonda & Ketut Campaign') and Adam Zwar (creator of Wilfred, Lowdown and the Agony series) have joined the cast of our brand new ABC half hour pilot, The Legend of Gavin Tanner and the New Best Mate.
Mandy and Adam will star alongside original stars Matt Lovkis, Emily Rose Brennan and Liam Graham as well as new cast members Eddie Baroo (Stan’s Wolf Creek) and Perth-born, London-based actress, Tahlia Norrish.
If our pilot proves a success and returns as a full series, The Legend of Gavin Tanner will join the likes of Comedy Central hits Broad City, Drunk History and Workaholics, HBO’s High Maintenance and Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital, as well as ABC's, Soul Mates - all TV series that started out as web series.
Rick Kalowski, ABC Head of Comedy said, “WA’s Mad Kids are one of the most exciting comedy outfits in the country. I loved their Legend of Gavin Tanner web series and I can’t wait to see what they do with it as a half hour pilot.”
The Legend of Gavin and the New Best Mate will debut on ABC at 9pm on 11 May 2016.
