In great news coming out of the UK BB1 has picked up THE HEIGHTS which is shot locally in Perth and screened on ABC. BBC1 has picked up the first two seasons and starts to air on June 15.
“This slice of life from the melting pot that is urban Australia is loaded with humour and drama and quickly draws you into the very diverse lives of its characters. Daytime viewers love drama with compelling story telling at its heart, and The Heights does that brilliantly.” said by Carla-Maria Lawson, head of BBC daytime.
The 30 x 30” serial drama centres on the inner-city neighbourhood of Arcadia Heights, exploring the relationships between the residents of the Arcadia social housing tower and the people who live in the rapidly gentrifying community that surrounds it. The Heights mines the frictions and commonalities between the upper and working classes in the melting pot of urban Australia.
The Heights is produced by Matchbox Pictures and For Pete’s Sake Productions for ABC and developed and produced with the assistance of ABC in association with Screenwest, Lotterywest and NBCUniversal.
