twentysomething: August 1
On Thursday night ABC2 screens the season final of twentysomething with Jess Harris and Josh Schmidt.
It’s not exactly clear if this is the last-ever episode or whether the show will get a renewal.
In her newfound career as an actress, Jess (Jess Harris) hits the audition trail full of naive optimism and confidence. But she soon discovers her ‘Agent’ is an online scam, and she is only eligible for an extras casting call for a medieval battle scene. Josh (Josh Schmidt) has his own pressures at university, with a six-piece photo exhibition due in order to graduate and, to make matters worse, the pair are down a roommate and can no longer make rent.
Jess, not willing to sit around and wait for the perfect part to be handed to her, decides it’s time to take control of her own career and make a reel to showcase her range and diversity. Needing Josh’s camera and filming expertise to get the job done, Jess offers to become the subject of his uni project as a trade-off.
To solve the rent problem, Billy (Hamish Blake) suggests that he move in to the third bedroom, but Jess freaks out at the thought of the magic disappearing from their relationship. When Jess and Josh arrive at Josh’s university in official graduation robes to hand in his final assignment, they discover there is no official ceremony. With Nick (Simon Russell), Fiona (Jasna Harris-Currie), Billy and Abby (Leah de Niese) all there to witness Josh’s graduation Jess demands they celebrate Josh’s big moment regardless.
8:30pm Thursday ABC2.
