BINGE is back, baby! That’s right, this streaming service is collabing with Aquarius Films, Screen Australia, and Screen Ireland to create a brand new series. What’s more, this series has an intriguing name, Mix Tape.

In a press release announcing the new project, Alison Hurbert-Burns, Executive Director Commissioning, Content and BINGE said that the streaming platform is “searching for stories that take our audience into a world they can lose themselves in but also be challenged by”.

She added: “Mix Tape is a nostalgic, music filled love story that will jump off the screen and make you say, ‘what if?'”

The series is set to be filmed in both Australia and Ireland, as we follow the characters’ story across the world.

“A co-production allows us to tell this Australian and international story at a scale that will capture the audience’s imagination and reinforces our commitment to creating premium, must-watch  original stories,” Hurbert-Burns said.
