Mur’bah back on screen in Lil­ley com­edy?

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

RU­MOURS are fly­ing around the Tweed Shire that con­tro­ver­sial Aus­tralian co­me­dian Chris Lil­ley is in town film­ing his lat­est se­ries for Net­flix.

So­cial me­dia was ablaze last week with peo­ple ques­tion­ing whether Lil­ley, who is fa­mous for his mock­u­men­tary se­ries Jonah

from Tonga and Ja’mie: Pri­vate School Girl, was re­spon­si­ble for a sign that read “Mr Dick” spot­ted hang­ing over the Hutchin­son Tiles build­ing in Mur­willum­bah.

While Tweed Shire Coun­cil wouldn’t con­firm whether Lil­ley was in­volved in the film­ing, two tem­po­rary film li­cence agree­ments were is­sued for the film­ing of a tele­vi­sion se­ries ti­tle Aard­vark at two lo­ca­tions in Tweed Heads from March 9–16 and at one lo­ca­tion in Mur­willum­bah from March 23–April 13.

The 10-episode com­edy se­ries, which is yet to be given an of­fi­cial ti­tle, be­gan film­ing last month and will con­tinue through to June and is ex­pected to give the lo­cal econ­omy a $6.35 mil­lion boost.

Lil­ley has been spot­ted on the Gold Coast as film­ing con­tin­ues.

His new project with Net­flix is part of the Queens­land Govern­ment’s $50 mil­lion pro­duc­tion at­trac­tion strat­egy. Tweed Daily News has con­tacted WP Pro­duc­tions Pty Ltd, the pro­duc­tion com­pany listed on the tem­po­rary film­ing li­cence agree­ment, for com­ment.
