No recommission for Three Drunk Monkeys’ 30 Seconds

Adland comedy 30 Seconds will not get a second series, Mumbrella can reveal.

Foxtel’s director of TV Brian Walsh told Mumbrella that although he was a fan of the show – written by Three Drunk Monkeys’ ECDs Scott Nowell and Justin Drape, and Tim Bullock from Prodigy Films – it had failed to resonate with the audience.

The six-part comedy, set at a fictional Sydney-based ad agency BND Worldwide, launched last year on The Comedy Channel. It was produced by Zapruder’s Other Films, the compnay behind the Gruen Transfer.

But speaking at the launch of Foxtel’s new season, Walsh told Mumbrella: “We’re not going to see another series of 30 Seconds. We gave it a good shot. It was a brave attempt.”
