Paul Fenech cult comedy Fat Pizza has been revived for a new season on 7mate.
Previously screening on SBS, the knockabout series about the perils of life as a pizza delivery guy enjoyed
six seasons and two feature films. It also brazenly indulged in political incorrectness, with Fenech signalling more to come.
“Fat Pizza Is one of the boldest Aussie comedies on television,” says Fenech. “Get set for bigger and cheesier storylines straight from the headlines. Social media trolls, get ready to rumble!”
Returning cast are Paul Nakad (Sleek) and Johnny Boxer (Bobo) plus Housos characters Shazza (Elle Dawe) Vanessa (Vanessa Davis) and Kev the Kiwi (Kev Taumata). Maria Venuti is understood to have agreed to a cameo as Mama.
Guest cast includes Brendan Jones, Jean Kittson, Anthony Mundine, Angry Anderson, Holly Brisley, Melissa Tkautz, Chris Franklin, Garry Who and George Kapiniaris.
New characters are Chef Jin Pin (Joe June), Jayden, The Proud Bogan Aussie (Peter Chidiac) and Mexican Rapper Tuco Swarez (Mero Vago D’cora).
Fat Pizza: Back In Business is produced by Antichocko Productions and screen on 7mate later this year.
Fenech reprises his lead role of Pauly Falzoni, former pizza delivery boy now boss, trying to rebuild the infamous Fat Pizza restaurant in the notorious suburb of Hashfield.
Struggling to get his business up and running, Pauly finds himself fighting with councils, street gangs, politicians and a new foe, the world of app driven delivery services.
With underpaid workers and a pizza chef struggling with English, Pauly’s business dreams quickly turn into a living nightmare.
