Like most of Australia, Dr Mumbo has been in a state of feverish anticipation since last July’s announcement that through Screen Australia, taxpayers would be funding a new six-part sitcom about public relations.
It promised “An outrageously funny and biting satirical ensemble comedy set in a PR firm that struggles to keep its clients out of the papers and their dick pics offline.”
Last night, production house Revolver’s sister company Revlover dropped a first look on how they’ve gone.
Logically enough, the show’s called Public Relations.
Dr Mumbo notes that the working conditions of the staff may not be recognisable to everyone working in the public relations industry.
For starters, the giant office seems a tad larger than your typical PR account exec might enjoy.
Then there’s the small matter that this is a public relations agency that also appears to be a design agency, or at the very least in the business of doing the logo approvals.
Dr Mumbo looks forward to the next instalment.
