Supernova returns to BBC TWO for second series - from Thursday 3 August 2006, 9.30pm
Rob Brydon returns as Dr Paul Hamilton for a second series
of the out-of-this-world comedy Supernova.
Paul and his eccentrically brilliant colleagues from the Royal Australian
Observatory are back for six episodes about life, love and the universe.
This new series sees Paul nearly start World War Three,
hunt for a killer kangaroo, get seduced by an 18-year-old girl, become
a champion camel jockey and enrage the ancient Aboriginal spirits by pilfering
their sacred relics.
Supernova is television comedy on a grand scale. The series
is set in the stunning Australian Outback and rockets viewers through far-flung
black holes, cosmic stardust and rips in the fabric of time and space.
The characters brave heat, flies, wildlife, crazy locals and each other
to unravel the mysteries of the cosmos.
Rob Brydon stars alongside noted Australian comedy performers Kris
McQuade, Kat Stewart, Peter Kowitz, Tim
Draxl, Damion Hunter and Hollie Andrew.
Supernova is brought to the screen by British director Sandy
Johnson (Jonathan Creek, Love Soup, William and Mary, Inspector
Morse, Auf Wiedersehen Pet) and co-produced by Fox World Australia and Hartswood
Supernova II's six 30-minute episodes were shot at Fox Studios
Australia in Sydney and on location in Broken Hill.
The series is commissioned
by BBC TWO in the UK and UKTV in Australia and premieres in the UK
in August 2006.
