Double Trouble

Double Trouble revolves around twins separated at birth.

The show is a lighthearted comedy drama about long separated twins meeting up and switching places. The story's of a kind familiar to viewers who remember The Parent Trap and a host of other 'twins' shows, here given a refreshing twist by the contrast of central Australian Indigenous community lifestyles with life in the big city of Sydney.

This series is a fast moving comedy drama, loaded with complicated situations and ever changing panics, improbabilities and problems to be solved. It has plenty of bush scenes, plenty of city life, some bush tucker, some painting, some dancing, modern and traditional, some football, and two families bemused by the strange ways of the swapped twins who've landed in their new homes.

It's also a story of different cultures. The white and the black. The city and the bush. Traditional ways of life and modern day thinking. It's a chance to explore Aboriginal culture without it being a tourist oddity. It is about people living their lives. It is about being exposed to a new and very different culture and having to cope.
