Presto Greenlights Short-Form Series Let’s Talk About


SYDNEY: Australian SVOD service Presto has ordered the short-form series Let’s Talk About, in which each episode will focus on a different subject during the nine months of pregnancy.

The 10×3-minute series was created by and stars Matilda Brown, daughter of Aussie actor Bryan Brown. The title will be available exclusively to Presto TV and Presto Entertainment bundle subscribers to stream on demand before having a world premiere on Presto in October. Additionally, the service has secured the two seasons of Matilda Brown’s previous short-form series, Lessons from the Grave. Both shows were developed with the assistance of Screen NSW.

“We are really excited about Let’s Talk About as a Presto exclusive,” said Presto TV’s interim CEO, Shaun James. “The series has wide appeal and audiences will be able to easily identify with the many topics it will cover. It is also perfect content for our many customers who use Presto on their mobile or tablet devices and for when they only have a short amount of time available to be entertained such as the morning or afternoon commute. Presto is also proud to be supporting up-and-coming local Australian talents like Matilda Brown who, like Presto, are redefining the entertainment landscape.”

Matilda Brown said: “I take my hat off to Presto for being courageous and supporting young Australian filmmakers like myself. Platforms like Presto are changing the industry for the better, allowing storytellers to produce content of all different lengths and genres. It’s a great opportunity for someone like myself who writes, directs and acts. I’m so excited to be coming along for the Presto ride and look forward to sharing Let’s Talk About with their subscribers. Hopefully they find it as fun and insightful as I did writing it.”
