Presto to stream Matilda Brown’s Let’s Talk About
The "short-form" series about pregnancy is the second Australian commission for Foxtel's streaming service.
Foxtel's streaming service Presto has purchased a brief 10-part series written and produced by actor/director Matilda Brown, daughter of legendary Australian actor Bryan Brown.
With each episode running just 3 minutes, Let's Talk About also puts Brown in a starring role. She plays Claire, a woman who has just begun dating Ben (played by Richard Davies from Offspring) and falls pregnant unexpectedly. As the press announcement explains: "Their predicament means there are some conversations they just can’t avoid, no matter how painful and this series explores them." Other actors featured in the show include Lisa Hensley as Claire's mother, Bryan Brown as her father, Steve Le Marquand and Bruce Spence.
The series is Presto's second original commission. Last month, it announced plans for a special one-off episode of Aussie soap Home and Away, which will only be available online and will launch in December when the regular broadcast series goes on hiatus. However, Let's Talk About will actually screen first, with Presto saying it will debut in October.
