Rosehaven is a comedy set at the bottom of the world on the picturesque island of Tasmania, written and created by real-life best mates and comedians Luke McGregor and Celia Pacquola
As Seen On:
“The first season is quirky, charming, relatable, sweet, and hilarious – all the ingredients of great comedy. We’re thrilled to partner with the ABC to bring this amazing show not only back for a second season but also to U.S. audiences.”
Luke McGregor (Luke Warm Sex, Utopia) is Daniel McCallum, who returns to his rural Tasmanian hometown, Rosehaven, to help his domineering mother with her real estate business. He gets a surprise when his best friend from the mainland, Emma (Celia Pacquola; Utopia, A Beautiful Lie), turns up on his doorstep - on the run from a marriage so fresh her husband is still on their honeymoon.
In no time these two friends are thrown into the center of small town life. Daniel is confronted at every turn by the ghosts of his adolescent past and a town that hasn’t moved on, while his mate Emma is lapping up her anonymity in Rosehaven and newfound life on the lam.
When Rosehaven premiered on ABC in 2016, not only did it captivate audiences and critics alike with its fresh take on the small town comedy, but it fast became ABC’s top rated comedy series for the year.
Season two will launch on ABC (Australia) and SundanceTV (USA) in the final quarter of 2017.
