Stan comedy Bump has received funding from Screen Australia.
The series was announced as having a second season earlier this year.
Claudia Karvan, star, co-creator and producer, said previously: “Bump is the show we needed now – a show that is authentic, full of heart and humour and is testament to our resilience.
“We all are champing at the bit to get back into the story room and bring these characters to life again. Stan have been the ultimate collaborators and we’re looking forward to working together again.”
Stan Original Series Bump is a 10-part drama series that centres around Oly, an ambitious and high-achieving teenage girl who has a surprise baby; and the complications that ensue for two families. Set in and around a high school in contemporary inner Sydney and following the main characters home, Bump explores unexpected motherhood, unwelcome new relatives, and unintended consequences with humour and emotional honesty.
The Stan Original Series is produced by Roadshow Rough Diamond (Stan’s Romper Stomper, Australian Gangster) and reunites Claudia Karvan with her fellow Love My Way producer John Edwards (Stan’s Romper Stomper, The Secret Life of Us). The series is also produced by Dan Edwards (Stan’s Romper Stomper).
