Red Arrow Studios International‘s enchanting new anthology series Summer Love has been nominated for four AACTA Awards, including best comedy program, best comedy performance (for both Patrick Brammall and Harriet Dyer) and best sound.
Created and directed by the award-winning comedy writers Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope (Upper Middle Bogan, Little Lunch), anthology series Summer Love is produced by Gristmill for ABC (Australia) and sees eight very different sets of people rent the same beachside holiday house, where they experience some incarnation of love. Stories featured in the anthology include two couples who discover their friendship has reached its expiry date, a gay couple who are forced to confront societal expectations versus what they really want, and sisters who take time out to recharge but somehow manage to bring the chaos of their lives with them.
Old People’s home for Teenagers, the spinoff to the multi award-winning Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, produced by Endemol Shine Group ABC Australia, is also nominated for best factual entertainment program.
The AACTAs span film and television, entertainment and factual programming. Held annually in Sydney, the main ceremony will be broadcast on Network 10 on December 7.
