Victorian Drama and Comedy Initiative (VDCI)
The final five projects funded through this partnership with the ABC moved into production during 2015/16. In total the VDCI helped secure a pipeline of 12 television titles produced in Victoria, providing over 4,000 employment opportunities with an estimated Victorian spend of over $64 million over a two year period.
Highlights include new series The Beautiful Lie, Glitch and Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane and the return of The Doctor Blake Mysteries, Please Like Me, Jack Irish and Upper Middle Bogan.
A new expanded partnership with the ABC was announced in June 2016 which will deliver more great drama and comedy, along with documentary and online projects and professional development opportunities.
