Jack Irish is back!

January 27th, 2016

Shane as Barry

After three successful telemovies, JACK IRISH returns in an expanded six-part series and Shane is reprising his role as Barry Tregear.

In this thrilling series, Jack is engaged to find a missing person, Wayne Dilthey only to be later framed for his murder. An alibi turns up out of the blue – an alluring but unnerving sculptor by the name of Sarah Longmore who is searching for her missing sister Tina. And if all this isn’t weird enough, the only witness to Dilthey’s murder has taken off with Jack’s beloved Studebaker.

Jack is quickly caught up in a complex web of powerful vested interests that stretches from his home town turf of Fitzroy to a remote village in Mindanao, Philippines, where his on-again-off-again girlfriend Linda Hillier becomes central to resolving the conspiracy.

The all-star cast is led by Emmy Award-winner Guy Pearce and includes Jack Irish regulars Marta Dusseldorp, Aaron Pedersen, Roy Billing, Shane Jacobson and Deborah Mailman, with Claudia Karvan, Marcus Graham and Brooke Satchwell.

JACK IRISH kicks off ABC TV’s Thursday nights’ season of home-made drama on Thursday, February 11 at 8.30pm.

It’s Open Slather!

May 25th, 2015

It's Open Slather with Shane and Co!

Creating a comedy ‘hot pot’, OPEN SLATHER combines the talents of comedy legends who have made us laugh for years (Glenn Robbins, Magda Szubanski, Shane Jacobson, Marg Downey, Gina Riley, Stephen Curry, Michael Veitch and Jane Turner), with a new wave of comedy performers (Ben Gerrard, Ben Lomas, Dave Eastgate, Demi Lardner, Emily Taheny, George H. Xanthis, Hannah Bath, Holly Austin, Ilai Swindles, Jay K Cagatay, Laura Hughes and Miles O’Neil) in a one-hour prime time Sunday night show.

Drawing on the proven track records of the highly experienced producer team of Rick McKenna (Kath & Kim) and Laura Waters (Summer Heights High), this is a show chock full of razor sharp commentary on contemporary society.

Each episode parodies popular culture, politics, sport, music, media – all the things that capture the imagination of the public and get people talking. From the Real Housewives of Melbourne to Downton Abbey, Gina Rinehart, Hillary Clinton and even Superman – no one is safe!

It’s the landmark comedy show that Australia has been waiting for. Subversive, energetic and risqué, everything is up for grabs – it’s literally OPEN SLATHER.

Now showing on Foxtel, find out more at the Comedy Channel
