Tower is a cultural melting pot
The Heights, ABC, Friday at 8.30pm
THIS ground-breaking serial drama is about a community trying to protect its way of life, while under the constant threat of gentrification and the social stratification of its neighbourhood.
The ‘slice of life’ drama explores the lives of six families living in the Arcadia social housing tower and the gentrifying inner-city district that surrounds it.
The series presents a medley of characters, cultures, classes and backgrounds, exploring their relationships, work lives and everyday challenges faced by its characters in an entertaining format.
In the series premiere, the residents are left reeling after an abandoned baby is discovered. The ensemble cast includes Claudia Rosso, Shari Sebens, Marcus Graham and Dan Paris (pictured).
