It will take place at the same fictional school that is featured in “Bump”, which is filmed at Sydney Secondary College Blackwattle Bay Campus…
Edwards said it will have the same “terrific sense of humour” as “Bump”, but will expand its outlook.
“That school is Blackwattle High School in Glebe, which sits right there on the edge of the [Sydney] CBD. And it’s got a very significant public housing population, plus $12 million terrace houses, and just that melting pot in the geography and all those things is kind of what was inherent on “Bump” in that school,” he said.
“And that’s going to carry over, but “Year Of” is going to branch out. It’s a lot more ensemble. The kids are really carrying the story.
“It will still be multi-generational, and I think that’s a big part of “Bump’s” success and I think it’s what John [Edwards] and Clauds have done together on a number of series as well in terms of the multi-generational thing.”
He wouldn’t give much more away about “Year Of” though.
“I won’t say too much more,” he said.
