Follow the Leyland Brothers

November 11 2019

Screen Australia will support the development Leyland Brothers: Monster Hunters, a 10-part fictional television series about what went on behind the scenes of the iconic Leyland Brothers’ adventures across Australia. Mike and Mal Leyland brought the Australian landscape into lounge rooms across the country with their documentary series in the 1970s, and this new comedy will show the ‘real story’ of how the brothers hunted monsters in the Outback. This paranormal adventure is created, written and directed by Daina Reid (Romper Stomper, The Handmaid’s Tale). Reid is joined by writers Christiaan and Connor Van Vuuren (Soul Mates), Kirsty Fisher (Laid), Kodie Bedford (Mystery Road) and producer Joanna Werner (Riot).
