BedHead Airs

Sep 17 2015

The awkwardly funny rom-com BedHead, part of ABC TV and Screen Australia's 'Fresh Blood' initiative, launched on iview today.

Originally created as a webisode by a group AFTRS Screenwriting students; Benjamin Mathews, Claire Phillips, Tom Keele, Reece Jones and Jon Dalgaard, who met while studying Screenwriting at AFTRS in 2012, the initial web series started its life as a super-low budget AFTRS' off-slate project with a slew of fellow AFTRS graduates in key creative roles.

Bedhead was then selected as one of 24 projects for Fresh Blood and then made it to the final four, resulting in the half-hour pilot that dropped today.

One of the final four pilots will then be selected to recieve a series commission in 2016.

Starring Paul Ayre, Sarah Bishop, Ainslie Clouston, Mark Winter, Andrew Steel and Genevieve Hegney Bedheads is a cheeky take on the scary world of modern dating revolving exploring the embarrassing things we get up to in the pursuit of love and intimacy and revolves around best friends Nick and Sophie, who sleep with all the wrong people as well as each other.

Congratulations to all involved and good luck to the team!
