On Wednesday, October 25th at 11/10c, SundanceTV will premiere the second season of its charming, critically-acclaimed Australian comedy series, “Rosehaven.” The eight-part series is created by, written by and starring real-life best friends and comedians Luke McGregor (“Luke Warm Sex,” “Utopia”) and Celia Pacquola (“Utopia,” “The Beautiful Lie”).
The first season of the quirky small-town comedy, set in rural Tasmania, debuted in the U.S. in September, and has been praised as having “one of the best non-romantic couples on TV,” by Indiewire and TV show “worth watching” by Vox.
In season two, Daniel (McGregor) returns to his hometown, Rosehaven, after being away on the mainland with his girlfriend, Grace (Katie Robertson). Using Skype and a spreadsheet, he now must juggle the long-distance relationship while trying to prove that he has what it takes to earn his place in the family real estate business. Newly promoted at McCallum Real Estate, Emma (Pacquola) must decide if both her dangerously disinhibited locksmith “boyfriend,” Damian, and small town life are enough for her. Roommates and workmates again, Daniel and Emma go to great lengths to earn their place in Rosehaven in the only way that matters – selling a house. The question is, will it be enough?
In the premiere episode, Daniel returns to the office after his month-long hiatus and finds that things have changed while he’s been away. When a disagreement between two tenants arises, Daniel and Emma have different opinions on how to resolve it.
The series co-stars Kris McQuade (“Wentworth”), Katie Robertson (“The Kettering Incident”) and David Quirk (“Please Like Me”). “Rosehaven” is a What Horse? / Guesswork Television production presented by Screen Tasmania, Screen Australia, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with Film Victoria, and SundanceTV joining as co-producers for the second season.
