MIPTV Spotlight: Australian Children’s Television Foundation


CANNES: The live-action mockumentary comedy series Little Lunch is being presented by Australian Children’s Television Foundation (ACTF) in Cannes.

The company is also offering up Ready for This, a live-action drama for teens from the producers of Dance Academy and Redfern Now, and Bushwhacked!, a documentary adventure series that takes viewers to some of Australia’s most remote corners. “Although all three programs are diverse in their content, they all have great stories and high production values, which buyers are sure to find appealing,” says Tim Hegarty, ACTF’s international sales manager. “All are filled with great characters, strong stories, real emotions and humor, and all have universal themes that children can relate to regardless of the country in which they live.”

Hegarty adds: “Our core focus at MIPTV is to follow up with as many buyers as possible on the three fabulous shows launched at MIPJunior last year.”
