This se­ries would be really in­ter­est­ing if one of the six young ac­tors seek­ing fame and for­tune in Hol­ly­wood ac­tu­ally made it. The footage of them strug­gling to get their first big break could then be trot­ted out at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity, ei­ther to em­bar­rass them or show how far they’ve come. Of course, they may al­ready be such great ac­tors that their ap­pear­ance on this doc­u­men­tary se­ries could be a care­fully crafted per­for­mance. It doesn’t really mat­ter though, be­cause watch­ing the three Syd­neysiders and three Mel­bour­ni­ans (where are the Queens­lan­ders?) get their hopes up and then crushed is great, if at times un­com­fort­able view­ing. The se­ries well and truly puts paid to any no­tion of the pos­si­bil­ity of be­ing an overnight success. It should be com­pul­sory view­ing for any act­ing wannabe.
