Hopes for more Redfern Now

1 February 2015 1:25 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The telemovie Redfern Now: Promise Me almost certainly won.t be the final chapter in the saga of the mostly indigenous residents of inner-city Sydney.

Grumio from Plebs on his love of Deal Or No Deal and why Spaced should return to TV

Anything with Chris Lilley, who did Summer Heights High. He recently had Jonah From Tonga and Ja’mie: Private School Girl. It’s weird characters in the middle of nowhere. I’m from a small village just outside Sheffield, and all my dad’s friends are oddballs. I really like the idea of being able to do that sort of thing myself. He does it absolutely perfectly.
