3:55pm – Wednesday, October 26 on ABC3
Wednesday, 26 October 2011 The drama series Dead Gorgeous returns to ABC3 and follows the comical adventures of three beautiful, strong-willed teenage sisters Rebecca (Melissa Howard), Sophie (Poppy Lee Friar) and Hazel Ainsworth (Alexandra Coppinger) who just happen to be ghosts.
When the three sisters died in a tragic coach accident in 1861, alongside their beloved nanny Mildred, they thought it was obviously some sort of cosmic ‘glitch’. How could it have been their time to die when they were only just beginning to live? Taking matters into her own hands, Rebecca makes an application to the Ghost Council, the high court of the afterlife, requesting them to return her and her sisters back to the world of the living. But the afterlife is much like real life, bureaucracy is slow and forms get lost or misfiled.
For the sisters, the wait was 150 years, stuck in limbo.
Meanwhile, the girls’ grieving parents packed up all of their clothes and treasured items and put them into the top attic room which was the sisters’ playroom. They would visit the playroom initially, but the grief was too overwhelming, so they had the entrance to the staircase sealed off with a brick wall. The room has since remained untouched and undiscovered for 150 years.
Upon their return to the estate, the girls quickly realise their home has been turned into a school. They now find themselves in a world unbeknown to them, surrounded by other kids their age and under the watchful eye of their colourful, disorganised ghostly guardian – Agatha (Julie Eckersley). The sisters can now relive their youth but under one circumstance – if anyone finds out about their secret they will be sent back to the afterlife, ending the opportunity to start again.
