Critically-acclaimed short-form Australian series Let’s Talk About will launch on Foxtel’s refreshed streaming service, Play along with Foxtel’s showcase channel from next month.
Matilda Brown (Am I Ok, How God Works) returns as creator and star of the charmingly cheeky Let’s Talk About Foxtel original series. After falling pregnant within weeks of knowing each other, Season 2 follows the next rollercoaster chapter in the lives of Claire (Brown) and Ben (Richard Davies – Offspring, Bed of Roses) when their daughter Lily is welcomed into the world.
Navigating parenthood while still getting to know each other results in situations you just can’t avoid, no matter how painful. Can Ben juggle it all before Claire concludes that her relationship with a loveable children’s clown is just a listless, sad joke?
Series regulars Bryan Brown (Red Dog, Australia) and Lisa Hensley (Brides of Christ, Dating the Enemy) return as Claire’s uncensored but well-meaning parents joined by Hollywood heavyweight Sam Neill (Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Jurassic Park), along with Damian Walshe-Howling (Underbelly, The Reef), Steve Le Marquand (Rake, Underbelly), Andrea Demetriades (Alex & Eve, The Principal), and Chloe Boreham (Wolf Creek 2) rounding out the stellar guest cast for Season 2.
Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said, “Foxtel is delighted to continue our valuable partnership with Matilda Brown and the team on the second season of Let’s Talk About. With an outstanding array of A-list Aussies working behind and in front of the camera, Let’s Talk About is another uniquely Australian drama from the Foxtel original series stable. The bite-size short-form episodes are perfect commuter entertainment or for binge watching back-to-back. This commission will be available on our newly refreshed streaming service, Foxtel Play, together with play outs on our showcase channel,” he said.
Season One’s 10×5 minute ‘snackable’ episodes were a smash-hit, quickly making their way to the top of Presto’s most-watched list. Due to the overwhelming success of Season 1, Foxtel extended Season 2 to 10×11 minute episodes made expressly for Foxtel Play with further broadcasts across the Foxtel platform.
Every episode of Let’s Talk About Season 1 and Season 2 will stream on Foxtel Play and on the Foxtel platform from February 19.
