The six part series is one of several projects funded today through Film Victoria.
Lucy’s first doco series Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey was an enjoyable look at religion so hopefully this is just as strong.
Film Victoria has also invested in more Offspring, Jack Irish, The Doctor Blake Mysteries and a one-off doco by Adam Zwar looking at the Bodyline incident in cricket, presumably for the ABC.
Judith Lucy is All Woman
Documentary, one-off for television from Bearded Lady Productions
Writer: Judith Lucy; Producer: Todd Abbott
Synopsis: In this six-part series for ABC TV, comedian and author Judith Lucy will use her own life as a starting point to explore whether women are any better off now than they were half a century ago, when the first bras were burnt in the name of women’s lib. The series looks at where women are at in modern Australia – and what that means for men.
Body Line: The Ultimate Test
Documentary one-off for television from Serendipity West
Director: Bruce Permezel; Writer: Alex West; Producer: Kate Pappas
Synopsis: This is the story of one of the most well known but perhaps least understood moments of conflict and controversy in the history of sport: The infamous Bodyline test cricket series of 1932/33. Cricket loving comic and writer Adam Zwar will try to discover what happened at the crease and chart the wider social and cultural implications of the controversy by enlisting historians, sports scientist, and cricket stars to simulate the actual events.
