A car accident, two strangers and an injured dog – is that pulling at your heartstrings already? It’s the recipe that’s made streaming service Binge’s second original series popular. Colin From Accounts follows two imperfect people who find themselves tied to one another under very peculiar circumstances.
This homegrown series is set in Sydney where Gordon and Ashley, played by series creators Patrick Brammall and Harriet Dyer respectively, are involved in a car accident that injures a stray dog and lands them both with a pretty hefty vet bill. But there’s more to this story than just making sure the pooch gets back on its paws.
Want to watch this will they/won’t they comedy series? We’ve got all the details on where and how you can catch the comedy series Colin From Accounts.
As Binge’s second shot at an original series, Colin From Accounts currently has only one season which was released on December 1, 2022. There are eight episodes in total, each offering roughly 30 minutes of laughs as Ashley and Gordon attempt to figure out what to do with the titular character, a dog named Colin, and each other.
Both Harriet Dyer and Patrick Brammall are no strangers to Australian audiences. Dyer has had a number of roles across various Australian series, from a single-episode appearance in Packed to the Rafters to a long tenure on Love Child. She also has credits across a number of films, including a supporting role in the adaptation of the H.G. Wells’ novel, The Invisible Man. Brammall also has a long list of credits, including roles on Home And Away, Upper Middle Bogan and even a two-episode voice acting credit on the delightful children’s show Bluey.
With the series filmed right here in Australia, there is a bunch of local talent on show alongside the show’s creators. Another Home And Away alumni, Tai Hara, appears as James for a few episodes and Helen Thomson, who you might recognise from Blue Heelers or more recently as Gladys Presley in the film Elvis, shows up as well.
