EXCLUSIVE: Stephen Curry will star in a new comedy special, Timothy, set to screen as part of ABC Mental As.. week in October.
He will be joined by Peter Rowsthorn and Denise Scott for the comedy produced by Quail Television.
Curry will play the 35 year old son of Melinda (Denise Scott) and Colin Garrett (Peter Rowsthorn) who has returned to Wollongong following bankruptcy as a corporate high-flyer in Hong Kong.
But he hides a mental breakdown with a long road to recovery that is paved with relapses.
The script is written by Tristram Baumber, whose self-funded comedy series The Cleanists has aired in the UK and Ireland on Showcase. It will be directed by Erin White (It’s a Date, At Home with Julia) and produced by Michelle Hardy (7 Days Later).
ABC Mental As… is a week long initiative in support of Mental Health Week, which will include comedy, documentary, and entertainment programming and will culminate in a two-hour, live, TV fundraising event.
Ambassadors for Mental As… week include Rove McManus, Deborah Mailman, Todd Sampson, Jeremy Fernandez, Emma Alberici, Justine Clarke, Adam Hills, Kayne Tremills and Waleed Aly.
