Portia de Rossi, Lucy Fry, Hamish Blake, Erik Thomson, Angus Sampson, Ben Lawson and Lucy Durack have joined the cast of the new Aussie comedy “Now Add Honey”, which began principal photography in Melbourne this week.

The six-week shoot has writer/producer Robyn Butler (“The Librarians”) “ridiculous exited”.

“I’m delighted to be working with such an amazingly gifted crew, led by my favourite director”, she adds, referring to husband Wayne Hope.

Hope says, “I married an awesome multi-tasker, it’s such a funny warm script. Robyn, Portia, Hamish and the rest of the cast make up a dream comic ensemble.”

Joel Pearlman, Roadshow Films Managing Director, said : “Roadshow Films is thrilled to be distributing ‘Now Add Honey’ in Australia and New Zealand. Robyn and Wayne are remarkable talents. Their recent work for the ABC has been outstanding and much loved by Australian audiences. We are excited to be part of their journey from the small to the big screen”.

Honey Halloway (Lucy Fry), shining Hollywood teen star returns home to Australia for a short trip and finds her life crumbling into chaos when her mother (Portia de Rossi) is suddenly sent away and Honey is forced to stay with her aunt Caroline (Robyn Butler) in the suburbs of Melbourne. Honey’s once normal existence is turned upside down and discovers her family is not so normal at all.

‘Now Add Honey’ is an uplifting comedy about what happens when you catch a falling star and put her in the spare room.

Roadshow Films will distribute ‘Now Add Honey’ in Australia and New Zealand – release date yet to be confirmed.
