Offspring (Network Ten) is an exuberant drama set in Melbourne’s Fitzroy, and centres on Nina Proudman’s (Asher Keddie) journey into motherhood as a single parent and her struggle to deal with her fabulously messy family.
Following the death of Patrick, Nina is determined to jump back into life. While raising her daughter, along with the help of unruly elder sister Billie (played by Kat Stewart), Nina rediscovers the joy and romance of life and continues her tendency to over-think and fly off into fantasy.
Following the Proudman family’s adventures searching for love, fulfilment and balance in the chaos of modern life, Offspring is about the life forces that drive us all: love, sex, babies, food and music. This life-affirming series provides food for the soul as it examines the curses and the blessings that come with intricate family connections.
Stylistically fresh and visually exciting, Offspring mixes conventional narrative drama with flashbacks and fantasy sequences, showcasing the vibrant world of Fitzroy, Melbourne, where Nina and the extended Proudman family go about their unpredictable daily lives.
