Bernie Brown is coming! A full length Australian comedy series from creator/writer/director Cassie Dart, produced by DCF Studios.
Based on the short comedy film 'What A Gun', the series is a wacky workplace, ensemble style comedy told in 6 x 40 minute parts. It follows the misadventures of Bernie Brown (Genevieve Brock), an aspiring artist with a concentrated zest for life and EPIC imagination. Bernie’s flights of fantasy often get her into trouble, but lucky her faithful companion, a ‘secret talking canine genius’ called Louie is always there to help, make dinner or even do the taxes (played by Lila the border collie and voiced by Christopher Downs).
Set in the alternate reality of the ‘Big City’, Bernie works as a mail girl at the Trickett Press, the last print magazine house in the country. While the Press struggles to let go of the past and make the transition to digital media, Bernie often finds herself at the centre of mayhem and drama. The Press is staffed by a team of lively characters, from outspoken boss Glenn Trickett (Craig Mather) who has no idea how to behave, to the all-knowing trickster courier Johnny, who can teleport at will. Among the ensemble also stars Constance Washington as the formidable Senior Editor Polly Canaré; on a feminist crusade to smash the glass ceiling and melt it down into diamonds. And Christian Heath, reprising his role as Adam Hunter, the slick Head of Creative and social media guru that Bernie falls head-over-heels into, but for all the wrong reasons.
Among these colourful characters and their intertwined stories, the show plays on what is real and imagined in a fast developing digital world. Bernie Brown is for anyone who enjoys a bit of fantasy with their comedy, a touch of romance, a nostalgia for the past, or just a healthy dose of slapstick!
