The Screen Guide

HARDBALL is a 13 x 30min live action comedy series that follows fish-out-of-water MIKEY and his two misfit mates, SALWA and JERRY. Their goal? Make Mikey the sweetest-bestest-acest handball champ Western Sydney’s ever seen. He’s got the most powerful strike in the world, if only he could make the ball land in the right suburb! Hardball is fast-paced, full of lol’s and crammed with action-packed sport sequences - aimed squarely at 7 - 10 year olds, they’ll be charmed by Mikey and his chums. While traversing the highs and lows of pre-teen life, Hardball explores themes of family, multiculturalism and acceptance. It’s The Boy in a Dress meets Little Lunch with a sprinkling of Hunt for the Wilderpeople in a heart-warming and hilarious journey that will leave the audience wishing they’d gone to Mikey’s school and had friends like him.
