Network Ten has announced a new Australian comedy series from CJZ, Street Smart, which follows a gang of would-be criminals who, despite spectacularly failing each time, approach every heist with blind optimism.
The new comedy is from the co-creators of Here Come The Habibs, and stars cult comedy star Tahir Bilgic (Pizza, Swift and Shift Couriers) as wannabe criminal mastermind Steve, whose big dreams of girls, riches and respect are constantly thwarted by his nemesis parking officer Joseph (Rob Shehadie, Housos) and his dedicated side-kick Tia (Casey Donovan).
The supporting cast includes Hung (Andy Trieu), Shane (Dave Eastgate) and Raj (Neel Kolhatkar).
Street Smart has received principal production investment from Screen Australia. It is produced by CJZ with the assistance of Screen Australia and Create NSW.
