Lowdown ABC1, 9.30pm
The charm of the Lowdown main character, tabloid journalist Alex Burchill (Adam Zwar), is that he remains utterly narcissistic and completely affable in equal measures. After Alex decides he has been disrespected by celebrity chef Brad Gordon (Steve Bastoni) – but who was, in fact, disrespecting Alex’s girlfriend and has no idea who Alex is – he holds a sting to exact revenge. With Geoffrey Rush’s voiceovers to spur him on, Alex tries to catch Brad cheating on his wife with actress Imogen (Kimberley Davies), while juggling a story about a woman who marries her cat. If this sounds like a joke, it is – and a brilliantly entertaining one at that.
