Jodie Dorday, Rebecca Hobbs, Carrie McLaughlin, Ingrid Park and Shane Cortese star in new local comedy-drama, Burying Brian.
Jodie’s life is turned upside down after she loudly drunkenly declares to her friends in a bar that she wishes her husband, Brian, would drop dead – and then returns home to find that her wish has been granted.
In a panic, she realises that her husband’s accidental death will now look anything but – so she enlists her friends’ help to remove his body and bury it in an empty field, thus removing all evidence of his death. After concocting a story that Brian has run away with his mistress, Jodie initially thinks she’s got away with the cover-up, but things soon start to unravel – beginning with the revelation that the field Brian is buried in is being dug up for housing redevelopment.
The new show is produced by Eyeworks Touchdown and launches Wednesday 2 July, 8:30pm on TV1
