Stan has released a trailer for its very first original commission, No Activity, featuring Patrick Brammall and Darren Gilshenan as two detectives awaiting a stakeout.
The improvised comedy, which also features Genevieve Morris, Harriet Dyer, Dan Wylie, Kat Stewart, David Field and Sam Simmons is due for release in October.
No Activity is an improvised comedy that follows the peripheral players in a major police sting operation. The day-to-day realities of cops and criminals are brought hilariously to life by some of Australia’s best comic actors.
Detectives Hendy and Stokes (Patrick Brammall, Darren Gilshenan) kill time on a stakeout as their lives crumble around them. Frequent radio updates of “no activity” put them in touch with unlikely dispatch officers Carol and April (Genevieve Morris, Harriet Dyer). Meanwhile the boredom of disorganised crime brings out the best and worst in an odd assortment of criminals (Dan Wylie, David Field, Sam Simmons). Guest appearances by Jake Johnson, Tim Minchin and Kat Stewart round out an original Australian vision of what can sometimes be the true activity behind the headlines – none at all.
From Jungleboys, the team behind A Moody Christmas and Review with Myles Barlow, No Activity is the first original series commissioned by an Australian SVOD service.
