Sex, drugs and… chronic illness. New SBS series crowned!
Darkly humorous female-driven web drama Homecoming Queens premieres in April.
Homecoming Queens is a semi-autobiographical dramedy, inspired by the friendship and real-life experiences of the show’s creators and writers Michelle Law and Chloë Reeson, with a little creative license.
Sharing the lives of two twenty-somethings as they navigate adulthood after life-changing illness, the show represents an exciting step-up for many of the head creative team as they present their first original longer-form work for a major broadcaster.
The talented team led by Victorian-based Producer Katia Nizic and Director Corrie Chen is supported by a Victorian HOD team including Production Designer Sally Addinsall, DOP Michael Latham, Sound Designer Lachlan Harris, Editor Amelia Ford, with VFX by John Francis of Surreal World.
Producer Katia Nizic said: "We're thrilled to be sharing Homecoming Queens with Australian audiences. We've been encouraged to take risks and tackle some of the big issues facing young people, in our own authentic voices. Homecoming Queens is a celebration of difference, and we hope audiences will love these characters as much as we do."
Developed specifically for SBS On Demand, Homecoming Queens is produced by Generator Pictures and supported through Film Victoria’s Assigned Production Investment program along with funding from Screen Australia, Screen Queensland, and Mind the Gap Film Financing.
Homecoming Queens will be available to stream on SBS On Demand from 12 April.
