WATCH UP! New ABC1 Comedy ‘A Moody Christmas’

It’s time to meet a new dysfunctional Aussie family, The Moody’s in A Moody Christmas. The new 6-part comedy series starts on ABC1 this October and it looks and feels promising. Check out the trailer below.

From the creators of Review with Myles Barlow comes a fresh new dramedy about an Australian family culminating for a Christmas feast with drama to ensue.

How does an unsentimental family get through the most sentimental time of year?

Once a year, for six years, we visit the lovably dysfunctional Moody family as they come together to share this universally celebrated holiday, stuffed full of all the fun, fights, bad gifts, boring uncles, overbearing in-laws, shocking family secrets and bizarre eccentricities that any family who’s experienced the melting pot of Christmas Day will relate to.

The cast features familiar faces; Patrick Brammall (Hawke), Jane Harber (Offspring), Danny Adcock (The Jesters), Robina Beard, Tina Bursill (Offspring), Guy Edmonds (Underbelly: Razor), Darren Gilshenan (Chandon Pictures), and Rachel Gordon (Blue Heelers).

It looks like good fun, a bit cheeky and over the top with some heart to it. Let’s hope it doesn’t fall into Australian television’s tendency to try and appeal to all demographics in the one show and in turn the series becomes one big hot mess.

A Moody Christmas premieres Wednesday October 31 @ 8:30PM on ABC1

Check out the trailer below.
