BUMP”

Coming Soon to The CW

 

BUMP is an Australian comedy-drama series about Olympia (Oly) Chalmers-Davis (Nathalie Morris, Almost Paradise,” “One Lane Bridge), an overachieving 17-year-old student who knows exactly where shes going. Her boyfriend, doctors son Lachie (Peter Thurnwald, King Kong: Skull Island,” “Thor: Ragnarok”), ticks all the right boxes; she and her best friend, Reema (Safia Arain, One Lane Bridge,” “Black Christmas), share an ambitious 10-year plan: top grades, international relations at a university, work for the UN, save the world.

Olys mother Angie (Claudia Karvan, Love My Way,” “The Secret Life Of Us) is the head of English at her inner city high school; and her father Dom (Angus Samson, Fargo,” “The Lincoln Lawyer) is a recently redundant executive whos been spending nights on his moored boat. Angie and Dom are lost in their own mid-life reckoning.

At school Oly collapses in agony. Shes sped to hospital in an ambulance, accompanied by Angie, and they are both stunned horrified! to discover that Oly is in labor. Blindsided, in deep shock, Oly rejects the baby entirely. If she doesnt acknowledge the baby, then she doesnt have to acknowledge how her life has irrevocably changed, or that the babys father is not her boyfriend; its Santiago SantiHernandez (Carlos Sanson, Jr., Legacies,” “Malibu Rescue: The Next Wave), the laid-back son of Angies major work crush: Chilean soccer coach Matias (newcomer Ricardo Scheihing-Vasquez).

The Hernandez and Chalmers families clash over differing expectations of family obligations and with Angie and Dom on the brink of separation already, and Matias and his wife Rosa (Paula Garcia, Little White Lies) battling their own messy household dynamic, the arrival of the baby sets off each family in different ways.

As the series develops, so does our understanding of what drew Oly and Santi together in the first place, and how it could bring them closer now if they can navigate this sudden onset of adulthood, and if their families dont get in the way.

Created by Claudia Karvan and Kelsey Munro, BUMP is produced by Roadshow Rough Diamond (Romper Stomper,” “Les Norton,” “Australian Gangster) with John Edwards (Love My Way,” “The Secret Life Of Us,” “Offspring), Dan Edwards (Romper Stomper,” “Australian Gangster) and Claudia Karvan (Love My Way,” “Doctor Doctor,” “Spirited) serving as producers.
