This week TV Tonight swung by the set of TEN’s new drama series Mr & Mrs Murder, starring Shaun Micallef & Kat Stewart.
If you’ve seen this duo together on other shows such as Newstopia you’ll know they crackle on screen together.
And without giving too much away, this looks like being a drama unlike anything else around at the moment.
The pair play husband and wife as crime-scene cleaners, but solving mysteries with more flair than the cops -so it soon becomes a business on the side. Get ready for all sorts of bizarre corpse scenes…
At home the couple is surrounded by a period home full of collectibles and Australiana, adding a quirky sense of character to the show. And while it might be easy to think of them as the next Hart to Hart, these two are far less romantic.
Mr & Mrs Murder is co-created by Micallef and FremantleMedia producer Jason Stephens (The King, Choir of Hard Knocks, Devil’s Dust, Better Man), and unlike a number of the murder mysteries we’ve seen lately, this one remains firmly contemporary.
Promos are already screening on TEN for the show that is expected to air early in 2013.
And we love a set visit that is walking distance from the TV Tonight office!
