Season 1: 8 x 30'
An ordinary workplace comedy set in the most extraordinary place on earth. Maya joins the long-running, and much-lauded, Bennett Station Adelie penguin program as a research assistant in Antarctica.
But by the time everyone on station figures out Maya’s completely unqualified for her job it’s too late – the ship is already en-route back to Australia and no-one is getting in, or out, of Antarctica until the Summer season ends.

Season 1: 8 x 30'
It’s 2041. The Earth is under the control of the benevolent ‘Corporation’ and time travel is not only possible but affordable for the common worker drone – sorry, person! Free with the purchase of the Timeslide 9000 machine, The Time Traveller’s Guide to Not Dying is an audio instruction manual designed to help owners choose which exciting historical moments to visit. It teaches them about where they’re going, who they will meet, and what to eat. As part of his parole agreement, Charlie Pickering anchors the guide, using his encyclopedic brain to fill us in on the places that time travel correspondents, Natasha and Toby, find themselves dispatched to. Between them, the pair of intrepid reporters storm the barricades at the French Revolution, get chatted up by JFK during the Cold War, and tried as a witch at Salem. Along the way, they try really hard to not get killed.
Performed by Charlie Pickering, Frank Woodley, Claire Hooper, Aleisha McCormack, Damien Fotiou, Odette Joannidis, Adam Crouch, Wendy Bos, Tony Briggs, Danny McGinlay, Xavier Michaelides and Karla Arnall.
Season 1: 8 x 25'
