We’re going back to the Wasteland in 2014! We’re looking for some great actors with striking faces to inhabit the Wasteland.
If you’re unfamiliar with the project, Wastelander Panda is about the last remaining pandas in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. We’re making six new ten minute episodes that will premiere onABC iView later in the year. The series will also exist as a single 60min version. If you want to see some previous Wastelander Panda episodes you can watch everything on our homepage.
This time, the story follows Isaac, one of the last remaining pandas of the Wasteland. Held responsible for the violent death of a young girl, Isaac is banished from the safety of the Tribe of Legion, along with his mother Hannah and brother Arcayus. Realising they cannot survive in the desperate and savage world of the Wasteland, a guilt-ridden Isaac seeks to reinstate the family to Legion – by seeking a replacement for the child whose life was lost.
