The ABC has green lit comedy web series Kgb, from brothers Luke and Dan Riches – a project borne out of Screenwest’s Indigenous online initiative, Originate.
Set in Perth’s notorious Kgb, the series – described as a cross between Black Comedy and Hot Fuzz – follows two rookie detectives, tough guy Jack and gentle giant Nigel, as they deal with the chaos of their new jobs, no-nonsense boss, work rivals, drug dealers and culprits who consistently turn out to be family members. Despite battling their own insecurities at every turn, and the fact that Jack bullied Nigel in high school, these two might just turn out to be Kgb’s finest detectives.
The cast include Clarence Ryan, Bjorn Stewart, Genevieve Morris, Mark Coles Smith, Aaron McGrath, Jesse Phillips, Lynette Narkle and Amy Smith.
Originate is a Screenwest and ABC Indigenous narrative web series development and production initiative for emerging Wa Indigenous screen practitioners.
