800 Words, Season 1
Successful newspaper columnist George Turner (Erik Thomson, Packed to the Rafters) has his world turned upside down when his wife suddenly dies. Looking for a fresh start, George packs up and moves his two teenaged children, Shay (Melina Vidler) and Arlo (Benson Jack Anthony), from the bustle of Sydney to the picturesque seaside town of Weld, New Zealand. But the Turners' new life doesn't go as planned when they face a series of setbacks and meet the eccentric townsfolk, including handyman Woody (Rick Donald, Friends with Better Lives) and the "women of Weld"-four single ladies who are intrigued by the handsome widower and his offspring. Hailed for it's "warmth and inclusiveness" (The Australian), this award-winning series is a heartfelt comedy/drama about a family searching for healing in the midst of tragedy.
