‘Two Hands’ TV series among Screen Australia’s 28 recipients of Story Development Funding

Gregor Jordan's crime comedy goes to series, a live action family film from Ludo, and a gay romance anthology are among projects sharing $950,000.

Screen Australia has announced that its final 2020/21 Story Development Funding round of $975,000 will be shared between 12 feature films, 13 television dramas and three online projects.

The Story Development Fund is for fictionalised stories of any genre and is open for applications year-round, and can be applied to any stage of a project’s creation towards production. These announcements chug along throughout the year and give a picture of what’s going in production and the kinds of ideas being developed. In this round, feature films become TV series, animators delve into feature film, and comedy looks back to counter-culture 70s and 90s sitcoms.
