Airdate: The PM’s Daughter

ABC's new tween drama centres around Cat whose mum just happens to be PM.

New tween drama series The PM’s Daughter debuts on ABC ME this week.

The 10 part series produced by Fremantle centres around Cat (Cassandra Helmot), who is like any other teenager, with one difference: her mother (Claire Fearon) is the new Prime Minister of Australia. Along with her new friends, Cat navigates life in the spotlight, while tracking down a hidden threat to her mum.

Catalina Parkes Peìrez (Cassandra Helmot) is like any other teenager who wants to have her voice heard. There’s just one complication: her mother, Isabel, (Claire Fearon) is the Prime Minister of Australia. Cat has always been someone who stands up for what she believes in, but her mum’s new job is putting a serious dent in her freedom to be who she wants to be. How can Cat make her voice heard when there’s so much pressure to support her mum and be “the perfect daughter”? As if all that weren’t enough, a series of stunts have started playing out across the national Capital, clearly aimed at sabotaging the Prime Minister. When blame falls on Cat’s activist heroes, Action Uprising, Cat decides to dig into unmasking an alternative group, the Agitators, who are really behind the stunts. Luckily for Cat, she has two new friends, Sadie (Natalie English) and Ollie (Jagayap), to help her.
