We are proud to announce that Lawrence has begun shooting a 6-part genre-busting action/comedy series named MAXIMUM CHOPPAGE, a co-production between ABC2 and Matchbox Pictures/NBCUniversal.
Lawrence is set to play the reluctant hero Simon Chan alongside Dave Eastgate, Stephanie Son, Darren Gilshenan, Anthony Brandon Wong, Jason Chong, Andy Trieu, Georgina Haig, Lap Phan and Felino Dolloso. Talented newcomer Kathryn Yuen will play his character’s mum.
The production is currently filming in Cabramatta and locations across Sydney with fight choreography by Trung Ly and his Dong Tam stunt team. Lawrence is expected to do his stunts!
He is also one of the writers (penning three eps) alongside Duncan Sarkis (Flight of the Conchords) and Josh Maplestone. The series is directed by Craig Melville who was also a director for Lawrence’s previous two ABC1 shows Choose Your Own Adventure and Unbelievable.
The series is expected to go to air on ABC2 in early 2015.
