Unwed mums drama
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.
