Comedy of the daily commute
Squinters, ABC, Wednesday February 7 at 9pm
THIS six-part comedy series celebrates the great Aussie ritual that is the everyday work commute. Cameras follow the comical trials and tribulations of five carloads of travellers in their peak hour transits to and from work, learning about their days in the process.
During morning peak hour and within the intimate car setting, workers of consumer goods dispatch centre Kosciusko reflect on their lives, share their goals and ambitions and plan their day.
Then, after the working day, the workers gather again as they discuss the highs and lows of the past eight hours as well as their hopes and dreams for the future.
Squinters stars Sam Simmons, Tim Minchin, Mandy McElhinney, Damon Herriman, Jacki Weaver (pictured), Susie Youssef and Andrea Demetriades.
