Principal photography has begun on Bushwacked!, a new children’s show for the ABC3 and NITV by North One TV Australia in the Tasmanian bush.

Hosted by Kayne Tremills and Brandon Walters, child actor in Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, the 13×26 minute series is shooting across Tasmania as well as tropical Queensland, the NT, NSW Eyre Peninsula in South Australia and urban Victoria.

Bushwacked! weaves Indigenous rites and rituals and aspects of native wildlife into action and stunts as Walters sets up Kayne to tackle challenges against wildlife.

The series will be distributed internationally by the Australian Children’s Television Foundation.

Bernadette O’Mahony Executive Producer, The Australian Children’s Television Foundation: said: “The ACTF has been pleased to be involved in the development of Bushwhacked with North One and ABC over 2011, and it’s great to see local factual and documentary projects being made specifically for Australian children. We look forward to our involvement in the production and to taking the series to the international market later in 2012.”

The series is supported by National Indigenous Television, Screen NSW, Screen Tasmania and Screen Queensland.
