The third season of the multi-award winning ABC and Sundance TV comedy series Rosehaven is set to start filming this week in Tasmania.
Starring two of Australia’s famous comedians Luke McGregor (Utopia) and Celia Pacquola (Offspring), the third series finds workmates and best friends Daniel (McGregor) and Emma (Pacquola) as successful Rosehaven real estate agents. As a result, their lives becomes filled with crazy landlords, crazier tenants and an overbearing boss, who happens to be Daniel’s mum.
The third season will look to showcase Tasmania’s unique stories to the rest of the world. Filming over a period of seven weeks, Rosehaven will feature locations such as Oatlands, Geeveston, New Norfolk, Longley, Richmond, Seven Mile Beach, Mountain River, Brighton and Chigwell.
Head of ABC Comedy Rick Kalowski commented on the news, stating: “Being back in Tasmania making Rosehaven Series 3 for ABC, and Sundance thanks to our US partners, is a joy. I’ve had few more thrilling days than when Celia and Luke first pitched it – knowing immediately ABC had to make it, and that it had the potential to charm audiences worldwide. And so it’s proved to be.”
The third series of Rosehaven will also boost both Tasmania’s television industry and talent, in front of and behind the camera, including the full-time employment of 35 Tasmanian practitioners and additional full-time training roles on the crew, all supported by Screen Tasmania.
The third series of Rosehaven will commence filming Monday 18th June, 2018.
