An off-beat Comedy/Drama/Mystery series set in the small rural town of Fat Cow, Australia. Desperete to keep the dying community alive, Cassie Brown claims that 80's legend Rory Toogood died in room 13 of the motel she runs in an effort to increase tourism - it works. That is until journalist Jack Green arrives and exposes the truth. Now, against all odds, Cassie and Jack must put aside their differences (and their bubbling romance) to save Fat Cow once and for all before it disappears off the map - and there's plenty of intrigue along the way.

Was a unique multi-platform show, with each episode ending with a mystery. Viewers could be part of the Fat Cow community by joining up at the official website (www.fatcowmotel.com.au) and by following clues and answering questions could solve the mystery before it was revealed in the next week's episode. They also could receive regular updates via the website and e-mails about the town and all that has been happening recently involving the citizens and the latest events. Prizes could also be won by those viewers who scored lots of points by cracking the puzzles. The show could be viewed stand-alone, by simply watching the show week to week - but by taking part in the website and all that it offered, it was a much more fulfilling experience. See more »
Like all great aussie shows, Fat Cow Motel is full of quirkiness and originality that set it apart from others of it's genre. Set in a small (non-existant) rural town of Fat Cow, this innovative/interactive comedy drama mystery is full of outrageous characters, an intriguing plot and lots of laughs.
Each week the audience is presented with the next part of the on going mystery, and also each week more and more towns people leave the town till eventually only 4 are left, Jack, Cassie and the most suspect characters - Ian and Martin.
Alot of people have been heard putting down quirky aussie's show, but this show proves that quirk has it's perks and was a great half hours of entertainment every thursday night...pity there's not going to be another season!
