Solution 3 Productions’ Bucket will make its primetime debut in Australia on pubcaster ABC later this year.

ABC Commercial has also secured the physical and digital home entertainment rights to both Bucket and Fleabag in Australia and New Zealand.

The four-part comedy drama follows Mim (Miriam Margolyes) as she gets her only child Fran (Frog Stone) to drive them on “the minibreak they never had” to mark her 70th birthday.

Jessica Ellis, head of ABC content sales and distribution, said: “ABC Commercial is thrilled to continue our close partnership with All3Media International as we work together on the local release of the hilarious new comedy Bucket.

“Miriam Margolyes is adored by Australian audiences and she’s at her scintillating best in this outrageously funny and touching new series.”
