Colin from Accounts Heads to BBC Two


The BBC has acquired the Australian romantic comedy Colin from Accounts, which will air on BBC Two and iPlayer later this year.

Created, written by and starring Patrick Brammall (Offspring, Glitch) and Harriet Dyer (The Invisible Man, No Activity), the eight-part series centers on two single(ish), complex humans who are brought together by a car accident and an injured dog. The story is about flawed, funny people choosing each other and being brave enough to show their true self, scars and all, as they navigate life together.

Colin from Accounts was commissioned for the Foxtel Group in Australia and is produced by Easy Tiger Productions and CBS Studios. Paramount Global Content Distribution licenses the rights.

Sue Deeks, head of BBC program acquisition, said: “Laugh-out-loud funny, warm and so relatable, Colin from Accounts is simply pure enjoyment from beginning to end.”

Colin from Accounts has already proven to be a hit with the Australian audience and critics alike, and we are thrilled to be working with our friends at the BBC to give it a home in the U.K.,” said Matthew Downer, senior VP of regional TV licensing at Paramount Global Content Distribution.
