ZDF Enterprises (ZDFE) has taken on distribution for the Australian comedic drama Other People’s Problems, a short-form web series originally created for ABC iview.
The show is directed by Erin White, written by Penelope Chai and Jane Dickenson and produced by Charlotte Seymour. Maria Angelico (Sisters, Wentworth) stars as Florence, a reluctant copywriter who embarks on a venture to ghost-write letters solving other people’s problems in exchange for secondhand clothing. The series is based on an actual website.
Other People’s Problems will have its international premiere at Drama Series Days, as part of the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival.
Seymour said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen for Drama Series Days, which is such a prestigious event for series formats, which are exploding worldwide, particularly short-form premium narrative content such as Other People’s Problems.”
