Airdate: Wellmania

Celeste Barber comedy on the wellness industry to premiere in late March.

Celeste Barber comedy Wellmania will debut on Netflix in late March.

When food writer and human tornado Liv, Celeste Barber, has a major health crisis, she is forced to rethink her ‘live fast die young’ attitude. After she scores a once-in-a lifetime job that will catapult her into the American mainstream, a series of unfortunate events in Australia sees her banned from re-entering the States unless she fixes her health. Throwing herself body-first into a wellness journey, she tries everything from the benign to the bizarre in an attempt to get well quick, and reclaim her old life.

Produced by Fremantle Australia, Celeste Barber and Warren Clarke (The Heights) are Wellmania’s Executive Producers. Bree-Anne Sykes (Here Out West) will serve as Producer. Benjamin Law (The Family Law) and Belinda King (Cleopatra in Space) are co-Executive Producers.
