Aussie Drama First Day Scores U.S. Deal


The children’s drama series First Day, from the Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF), is set to stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu.

Created by writer/director Julie Kalceff, First Day stars young transgender actor Evie Macdonald as Hannah Bradford, who is about to start her first year of high school. As a transgender girl, Hannah not only has to navigate the challenges that come with starting a new school but also find the courage to live as her most authentic self.

Bernadette O’Mahony, ACTF’s executive producer and head of production, said, “We are delighted that Hulu has embraced First Day, and that children and families across the U.S. will get to see this important and entertaining series, as well as get to see Evie’s fantastic performance as Hannah.”
