Marx and Venus will be a series of short television situation dramas based around two characters developed by Geoffrey Atherden of Mother and Son and Grassroots fame. The series features flat-mates John Marx and Venus Hoy – and the trials and tribulations they face sharing their flat. The programs are to be used as interstitials in SBS’ schedule. They are intended to be bright and fresh and fit an M classification. Marx and Venus is to be a stripped drama, to be shown five nights a week in primetime, and each episode will be only five minutes long.
