Next week ABC3 premieres a new Aussie kid’s series, Mal.com about a bunch of kids who discover that one of TV’s most popular hosts is actually a robot.
The kids are described as ‘wheeler dealer Jake (Luke Ledger), wannabe starlet Daisy (Ruby Hall) and the seriously feral Kid (Gwy McKenna)’ while the host, Malcom Mann (Geoff Paine) is otherwise known as a Male Artificial Life form.
TV3 producer Holly (Danielle Carter) picked him up cheap at an auction site and reprogrammed him to become the number one star on the number one TV network. Holly’s desperate to keep a lid on TV’s biggest secret so Jake, Daisy and the Kid are prepared to keep quiet, but for a price.
The 13 x 15minute series is produced by Susie Campbell for WA-based Animazing Productions.
It airs Friday, October 28 at 7.10am.
