Seven picks up Agent Anna from NZ
Seven has picked up NZ dramedy Agent Anna, devised by and starring actress Robyn Malcolm.
The 6 part series aired on TV One in January.
“I’ve got a New Zealand show that’s airing on Channel Seven at some point. I made a little show called Agent Anna about this middle-class divorcee who tries to sell real estate,” she told TV Tonight.
“It’s kind of a weird Office / Parks and Recreation / Enlightened bonkers show about a dysfunctional woman and Seven have bought it.”
It also features Adam Gardiner, Theresa Healey and Roy Billing.
NZ content also attracts local content points when screened on Australian networks, although Seven has only screened factual shows in recent years.
“I don’t think we’re quite so generous to Aussie shows here (in NZ) and I wish we would be,” Malcolm said.
She will soon be seen in ABC’s Upper Middle Bogan and resumes filming Rake shortly.
No airdate for Agent Anna has yet been announced.
