The chameleon of character invention, writer/performer Chris Lilley brings to life six vastly different characters, but they all have one thing in common – they will entertain and intrigue, as their private worlds are revealed.
Still living on the family farm in Dunt, identical twins Daniel and Nathan Sims, who appeared in We Can Be Heroes, are back. Joining the boys in the series are four new characters; former surfing world champion Blake Oakfield, a family man and founding member of a surfie gang – the Mucca Mad Boys; S.mouse a U.S. rapper famous for having produced the biggest selling hip-hop single of all time; Japanese mother Jen Okazaki, a shrewd businesswoman, she also manages her son’s skateboarding career; and Juvenile Justice Centre for Boys officer Ruth Sims, aka Gran. Gran takes pride in looking after the ‘worst boys in the state’ and can be as tough on the boys as she is kind to them.
The series kicks off in Dunt, South Australia, home to identical twins Daniel and his 90 percent deaf brother Nathan. They dam surf, they skate, they do ‘mainees’ in the street in their mother’s hotted up Nissan Pulsar. In their bedroom are the ‘Wall of Legends’, pictures of the people they consider their heroes – surfer Blake Oakfield, Japanese skater Tim Okazaki, U.S. rapper S.mouse, bikini model Emily Chase, their late dad and their prison officer grandmother, ‘Gran’. Gran lives and works at Garingal Juvenile Justice Centre for boys together with her co-worker Penny. In her spare time, Gran cares for her 23 guinea pigs and makes superhero pyjamas for the young inmates.
