These New South Whales Season Two out today via Comedy Central ANZ

May 9, 2018

THESE NEW SOUTH WHALES are thrilled to share Season 2 of their highly anticipated mockumentary series, out today exclusively through Comedy Central Australia and New Zealand. The series can be viewed on comedycentral.com.au and will air across Comedy Central ANZ on Fetch TV channel 108 and SKY NZ channel 11. Start watching here.

Executive Produced by Laura Waters (Summer Heights High, Ja’mie: Private School Girl), Jeffrey Walker (Modern Family, Difficult People) and Roger O’Donnell (The Cure) and featuring all all-star cast (see fell list below), the eight-part season toes the line between what’s real and what are the delusions of Newcastle’s favourite underdogs as they traverse the country in their very own TNSW-branded tour bus in desperate pursuit of stardom. Watch the band as they rub shoulders with washed up child stars, get assaulted by their idols, navigate their way through the pains and gains of life on the road and are reunited with friends (and foes) from the past.

Jamie Timony of These New South Whales says, “I’m so proud of this series! We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to make our dream show with our dream team. I hope everyone gets as much enjoyment out of watching it as we had making it! Best served with Maltesers!”

Season one and two of THESE NEW SOUTH WHALES is out now Comedy Central ANZ and comedycentral.com.au.
