Robin Hood’s Australian reboot
Robbie Hood, SBS Viceland, Tuesday at 9.35pm
RISING talent Dylan River directs this modern Australian retelling of a classic tale. The six-part series is a story about Robbie, a 13-year-old misfit with a heart of gold.
He and his two best mates – little Georgia Blue and big Little Johnny – skirt the law to right the wrongs they see going down in their hometown of Alice Springs.
With no parental supervision, no money, and only themselves to rely on, Robbie and his friends spend their days getting around on their BMX bikes, causing headaches for the local police and avoiding Robbie’s dad. The memory of Robbie’s mother sticks in his head though, and his life of mischief is led with a strong sense of right and wrong.
Also available to stream on SBS On Demand.
