Short Cuts to Glory: Matt Okine vs Food airs on Thursdays at 8pm on ABC.
He believes the new series strikes a perfect tonal balance between comedy and drama.
“There are some really fun moments and there’s some absolute ridiculousness going on but there are also moments that I think are going to hit people because we wanted to try to replicate the reality of a relationship and how difficult being in love and being heartbroken is,” he says.
Loosely based on Okine’s life, the six-part series follows successful Sydney radio host AJ Amon (played by Okine) who finds himself unexpectedly back in the dating pool after discovering his long-term girlfriend has been having an affair with his best friend.“Online dating was the weird thing to do and now it’s like talking to people at a bar is the weird thing to do,” Okine says of the current app-driven dating world.
The series was written by Okine and Becky Lucas (Please Like Me) and script-produced by Greg Waters (Soul Mates, Dance Academy).
Aimed at fellow food-lovers who are also trying to increase their culinary prowess, Okine asks questions as basic as how to know when water is simmering.
What Okine may lack in cooking skills, he makes up for in enthusiasm.
