Chris Lilley offensive

Controversial comedian Chris Lilley is back, but he probably won't be doing blackface this time. The Queensland Government announced this week that it was supporting a new project from Lilley, to be filmed in the Sunshine State and to be available from streaming giant Netflix.

In a press release, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the 10-episode comedy to be filmed between March and June this year would provide a $6.35 million boost to the economy. "Queensland's continued ability to attract high-quality film and television production is a testament to our local screen industry," she said.
