Stan has released a teaser trailer to confirm that their original series No Activity will be returning for a Christmas Special. The festive seasons special, No Activity: The Night Before Christmas, will be reuniting the original award-winning creative team of Patrick Brammall (Glitch, Upper Middle Bogan, A Moody Christmas) and Trent O’Donnell (New Girl, Brooklyn 99, The Good Place, A Moody Christmas), who will also be directing, as well as the series producers, Jungle Entertainment.
The show’s original lead case will be returning to join Brammall and O’Donnell, these including Darren Gilshenan (The Moody’s, Janet King, Rake), Harriet Dyer (Stan Original Series The Other Guy, Love Child), Genevieve Morris (That’s Not My Dog, Blue Heelers, Comedy Inc), Dan Wyllie (Stan Original Series Rompers Stomper, Offspring, A Beautiful Lie) and David Field (The Secret Daughter, The Rover, Last Cab to Darwin).
No Activity‘s Christmas Special will be an improvised comedy which will follow detectives Hendy and Stokes (Patrick Brammall, Darren Gilshenan), who are assigned to monitor a Christmas Eve stakeout from their parked car. Cue a disgruntled Santa Claus holding up a group of innocent Christmas shoppers hostage inside a suburban mall, and the detectives must come to the rescue on a seasonal twist of a police assignment.
