Colin from Accounts also stars Helen Thomson (Elvis, Irreverent), Emma Harvie (Frayed, The Let Down), Genevieve Hegney (The Little Death, Devil’s Dust), Michael Logo (Love Me, Why Are You Like This) and Tai Hara (Home & Away, Madam Secretary).

It is directed by Trent O’Donnell (Review with Myles Barlow), Matt Moore (The Great, Diary of an Uber Driver) and Madeleine Dyer (Neighbourhood Wars, Blood Sisters), and executive produced by Patrick Brammall, Harriet Dyer, Trent O’Donnell, Alison Hurbert-Burns (Love Me), Brian Walsh (John Wick, Nightmare Alley), Rob Gibson (Bloom, Under My Skin) and Ian Collie (Saving Mr Banks, Sunshine).


Sue Deeks, Head of BBC Programme Acquisition, says: “Laugh-out-loud funny, warm and so relatable, Colin From Accounts is simply pure enjoyment from beginning to end”

“Colin From Accounts has already proven to be a hit with the Australian audience and critics alike and we are thrilled to be working with our friends at the BBC to give it a home in the UK,” says Matthew Downer, Sr. Vice President, Regional TV Licensing, Paramount Global Content Distribution.


Colin from Accounts, commissioned for the Foxtel Group in Australia, is produced by Easy Tiger Productions and CBS Studios and was acquired by the BBC from Paramount Global Content Distribution.

Colin from Accounts will launch on BBC Two and iPlayer later this year.
