We’ve been getting tidbits of what to expect from Mad as Hell.
It’s been announced as a half-hour weekly round-up, branding, inoculation and crutching of all the important news stories of the week. There will be reportage, analysis, discussion, argument and dissection of the week’s events and what’s making the world turn every which way.
So, the cast: not surprisingly, but very happily, Francis (Greenslade) is on board. Also from the Micallef P(r)ogram(me) days is Roz Hammond. Veronica Milsom, Emily Taheny and newbie Tosh Greenslade (related?) round out the ensemble.
The show will have a studio audience! (Ticket info here) As previously ‘guessed’, it will be shot at the ABC Studios in Elsternwick, Melbourne.
So tell your parents, friends, cat(s), re-animated corpse in the basement, and that long lost uncle who moved interstate but you still write a Christmas card for – it starts Friday May 25 at 8pm on ABC1.
