"Turn Up The Volume"
ABC announces the debut of the empowering and entertaining, drama series, "Turn Up The Volume" (10 episodes) on ABC iview on Friday March 24th, with the first episode airing on ABC ME.
Showcasing the next generation of young Australian talent, "Turn Up The Volume" follows a group of female and gender non-conforming teenagers as they come together at music camp and form a rock band. When Vivi (Riya Mandrawa), Ginger (Elaine King), Breeze (Mira Russo), Hex (Ezra James) and Jam (Ayiana Ncube) turn up to their first day at music camp, they’re a real mix of disillusioned, wildly enthusiastic and everything in between. But as this group of young musicians get to know each other, they discover the strength to define themselves on their own terms and find belonging in the embrace of a new community.
The series is a Matchbox Pictures (part of Universal International Studios) and Film Camp production, with major production investment from Screen Australia and the ABC and starring by Justine Clarke, Michala Banas, Kaiya Jones and Spencer McLaren and new talent.
Inspired by the coming-of-age documentary "No Time For Quiet" which showcases the first Girls Rock! Camp in Melbourne, "Turn Up The Volume" explores the power of music, friendship, and creativity as forces of transformation and connection.
