Bunchie is essentially a comedy with elements of nostalgic drama. Bunchie is a loveable comedic anti-hero in the style of Leslie Neilson and The Naked Gun. Something goes wrong wherever he is, but he plows through the debris and destruction, metaphorically and sometimes practically speaking, generally innocent of it all.
The series idea is set in the world of the criminal underground and brings to the screen comedic and sometimes absurd pictures of the world of crime. Bunchie, the would-be hitman descended from a line of hitmen, who’s never killed anyone and never will, lives in a fantasy world of crime. All the characters are “Over The Top”. The stories and characters are designed to be light, entertaining and funny.
We want to intertwine Australian banter and a great sense of comedic direction behind all our characters. Each episode is to have a fast pace, quick 5-10m turn around and project an action style, drama. Bunchie is funny in his movements, his facial expressions, his banter with the contrast between serious characters and anything crime related.
