ABC Commercial brings an exciting new slate of programmes to ATF 2018


ABC Commercial will bring an exciting new slate of programmes at the Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF) in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore this year, including Back in Very Small Business, Catalyst and Dream Gardens.

The heart-warming comedy from the award-winning creators of Upper Middle Bogan, Back in Very Small Business (8 x 30’) follows Don Angel (Wayne Hope, The Librarians), a small business shyster who helms his suburban empire with equal parts zeal and tax evasion.

Surrounded by his diverse and culturally defiant employees, Don’s intolerance towards his staff is outweighed by price point and a genuine excitement that his business is finally becoming worldwide. But in his incessant pursuit of cash, Don is plagued by the consequences of his shady business practices and stunted emotional life. With his back against the wall and his business at stake, Don develops an unexpected affection for his ragtag employees – who ultimately come to his rescue when he needs them most.

Australia’s flagship science documentary series Catalyst (17 x 60’ ongoing) is back with a fresh new hour-long format, taking viewers to the heart of the most important scientific developments from around the world. Hosted by scientists, experts and researchers working at the cutting edge, audiences share the wonder and excitement of eye-popping science across focus subjects including health and wellbeing, medicine, astronomy and technology.

Exceptional outdoor spaces come to life in Dream Gardens (24 x 30’), the acclaimed lifestyle series hosted by Michael McCoy – one of Australia’s leading landscape designers. Across two new seasons, Michael follows the transformation of these gardens and watches as their owners, working with Australia’s best landscapers, battle weather, absent tradies, shifting design visions and budget blowouts to achieve their dreams.
