Un­wed mums drama

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

CHAN­NEL 9 has an­nounced de­tails of its new drama se­ries, Love Child, un­veiled with a teaser ad dur­ing the TV Week Lo­gie Awards broad­cast on the week­end. Set in 1960s Syd­ney, it stars Jes­sica Marais (pic­tured), Jonathan LaPaglia and Mandy McEl­hin­ney. The eight-part se­ries will fo­cus on a home for un­wed moth­ers in in­ner-city Dar­linghurst and its sur­round­ing streets. ‘‘The sto­ries of young women and men fight­ing an un­just sys­tem are as rel­e­vant to­day as they were in the colour­ful, con­fronting and lib­er­at­ing world of Kings Cross in 1969,’’ says Andy Ryan and Jo Rooney, Nine’s joint heads of drama. Pro­duc­tion is ex­pected to be­gin soon, with the se­ries set to air later this year.
