ABC’s $14 million children’s series Resistance has been reduced in output amid production delays.
The futuristic 26 x 30min series, a co-production between new production company Persistence Productions and Shaftesbury Films of Canada, will now be cut down to an unspecified number of episodes, with a delay due to story changes and script rewrites.
The series produced by Andrew Dillon and Geoff Bennett was originally due to begin a 23-week shoot in October, trumpeted as the first major production for South Australia’s new Adelaide Studios complex.
The ABC has confirmed that production will begin at the end of the first quarter of 2012, subject to script approval, with a shorter shoot.
Persistence Productions is a special purpose vehicle set up by Sydney-based That’s–A-Wrap Productions (IF Awards).
