True Story with Hamish and Andy


Hamish & Andy ‏@hamishandandy

First day shooting our new show which despite what it looks like, is not called Australia’s Got Rubbish. Back on air next month, can’t wait!



We’re excited to announce almost nothing about our TV show… except the name!

True Story with Hamish and Andy premieres 5 June on Nine

Episode One stars Emily Taheny, James Saunders, Fiona Choi & Keith Brockett in “Rachel’s Anything Story.”

Rachel is a bubbly and warm-hearted mother who always puts family first – a family that has been
known to attract their fair share of bad luck, especially on holidays. But through sheer will and a sense of humour, Rachel’s strength and optimism always gets them through.

While on a work trip to Hong Kong, Rachel’s husband Mark, her two-year-old son Ashton and five-year-old daughter Brooke flew over to visit. After a week of lecturing in risk management, Rachel and her family are invited to dine with one of Rachel’s students: a high-ranking government official. But when they arrive at the unexpectedly fancy restaurant, Rachel’s risk management skills are put to work like never before. When the special entrée is brought out, a local delicacy called Thousand Year Old Eggs, Rachel is willing to do whatever it takes to avoid eating the stinky and expensive dish. So, not wanting to be rude to her gracious hosts, she sneakily promises Mark that she will give him “anything” if he eats her eggs. He of course accepts the challenge – one they would all soon regret.




Radio Karate and Warner Bros. International Television Production (WBITVP) are launching True Story with Hamish & Andy at the annual MIPCOM conference in Cannes next week.

The series was created and produced by Radio Karate’s Tim Bartley, Hamish Blake, Andy Lee and Ryan Shelton for the Nine Network.

Commenting on the acquisition of True Story internationally, Andrew Zein, SVP creative, format development and sales for WBITD said: “We’re thrilled that the team at Radio Karate have partnered with us to bring True Story With… to international buyers and commissioners. We’re confident that there are thousands of great stories out there and this format is a unique way of giving them a chance to shine.”

Hamish Blake and Andy Lee said of the deal: “We are stoked to be teaming up with Warner Bros on this project. We are well aware that Australia isn’t the only country with funny, true stories in it, so we cannot wait to see what everyday tales make it onto screens throughout the world. We are currently learning Spanish, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Polish, Danish and Greek so we can enjoy the episodes in those countries if it ends up getting made there.”
