Tricky Business

8:30pm – Tuesday, September 4 on TV 3

Starring Outrages Fortune’s Antony Starr, 3’s brand new series Tricky Business looks at the lengths people go to get themselves out of trouble. Tricky Business premieres on Tuesday, September 4 th at 8:30pm on 3. At the heart of the series is Kate (Gigi Edgley) – an over-organised, but loving single parent, struggling to get the family’s mercantile agency out of debt, her mission complicated by two men, opposites of each other and both vying for her heart.

Rick (Kip Gamblin), her business partner and sometime live-in lover is a good guy who makes her laugh. But when he loses all the agency’s money in a get-rich-quick scheme, his carefree ways look more like careless ways.

Matt (Antony Starr), on the other hand, is the stranger and slightly mysterious – not a part of the family in the way Rick is. He’s got a lot of ground to make up, but that could just be an advantage. Jim (Shane Bourne) and Claire (Debra Byrne), Kate’s parents, have recently retired and are looking forward to a long planned sailing holiday. However, when Kate gets into financial difficulty they decide to cancel the trip and help out.

While Kate appreciates this, she would prefer not to be sharing the family home with her parents, her daughter and her sister, particularly with Claire as much of a control freak as Kate.

Jim isn’t too sure about living with three generations of women either, as much as he loves them all. And what will Kate’s daughter Emma (Odessa Young) make of being forced to move out of home to live with her grandparents?Then there’s Lily (Sophie Hensser), Kate’s sister, and Chad (Lincoln Lewis), the Gen Y members of the extended family. Whilst they are basically easy-going twenty-somethings, they have their own secrets and complicated affairs of the heart too.

But as with all affairs of the heart, life can often prove to be a tricky business. Tricky Business premieres on Tuesday, September 4 th at 8:30pm on 3.
