An Easy Tiger & Blow By Blow Production for ABC Australia in association with Create NSW
One year on from taking up residency in Canberra as a Senator in Federal Parliament, Cleaver Greene has old foes and new. Cleaver has a new nemesis in the formidable and right wing Senator Penny Evans and a new comrade in his COMCAR driver Jakub.
With a suspected terrorist gas attack on New Parliament House, an unfortunate incident during a visit by US Defence Secretary Linus Potemkin, calling for a banking boycott whilst dressed as a Zebra, an assassination attempt, a defamation case, the fight to maintain an Aussie ice cream icon and the ever-rotating Prime Ministers and BuzzStay guests – none of Cleaver’s ensuing chaos has abated. Will Cleaver step up to help Australia keep calm and carry on, or will he add more chaos to his life and the lives of those around him?
