I have just competed work as the Drama Coach on Magpie Pictures’ GRACE BESIDE ME, an Australian children’s television series to screen on the NITV network in January 2018 and soon after on both the ABC TV & The Disney Channel.
The 13-part series, filmed in the Scenic Rim district of SE Queenland is adapted from the award-winning novel “Grace Beside Me” by Sue McPherson. It tells the story of Indigenous teenager Fuzzy Mac, who just wants to be an ordinary young woman and have fun with her mates, but that’s not so easy when her ancestors have other plans and she keeps seeing spirits.
Pictured above are the series’ juveline leads, Kyliric Masella as Fuzzy Mac, Mairehau Grace as Tui & Tjiirdm McGuire as Yar. The series is produced by Lois Randall and Dena Curtis, NITV executive producer is Mary-Ellen Mullane, ABC TV executive producer is Libbie Doherty. It is directed by Lynn-Maree Danzey, Beck Cole and Nicholas Verso.
