Filming has commenced in Queensland on an upcoming ABC ccomedy series Limbo, starring Ryan Corr (Holding The Man, Wakefield, House of the Dragon) and Bob Morley (Love Me, The 100).
They star as best friends Charlie (Corr) and Nate (Morley) faced with how hard it is to let go of those we love – especially when they’re taken too soon. And when they come back to haunt you. Literally.
The ensemble cast also features Emma Harvie (Frayed, The Letdown) and including Shabana Azeez (Metro Sexual, The Hunting), Russell Dykstra (Irreverent, Fires, Rake), Lena Cruz (Here Out West, The Unusual Suspects, Dirt Game), Aaron Fa’aoso (Black Comedy, East West 101), Jane Harber (Offspring, The Moodys), Philippa Northeast (Standing Up for Sunny, The Newsreader), Josh McConville (Elvis, Fantasy Island), Kamillia Rihani (The Twelve), Georgina Naidu (Seachange, Rosehaven).
Todd Abbott, Head of Comedy for the ABC, said, “The fact that so many of this brilliant cast, who are kicking goals internationally, are coming home to make this series speaks volumes about what a special show it is going to be. It’ll warm your heart, break your heart, thump you in the guts and, most importantly, make you laugh the way only a ghost buddy comedy set in Brisbane can.”
The six part series is produced by Bunya Productions (Mystery Road, Sweet Country) and Heiress Films (Man Up, Making Couples Happy), Limbo is created by Lucas Taylor (Harrow, Vikings: Athelstan’s Journal), written by Lucas Taylor and Tamara Asmar (On The Ropes, Love Child) and directed by Trent O’Donnell (No Activity, Hacks, Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and David Stubbs (Daffodils, Black Hands).
Limbo will air on ABC in 2023.
