Strife, which was commissioned by the Foxtel Group from award-winning production company Made Up Stories, in partnership with Fifth Season, features an ensemble of established and up-and-coming talent including Matt Day, Jonathan LaPaglia, Tina Bursill, Emma Lung, Maria Angelico, Rhys Mitchell, Olivia Junkeer, BeBe Bettencourt, Bryony Skillington, Lucy Ansell, Darcy Tadich and Willow Speers.
Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies, Wild, Nine Perfect Strangers, Penguin Bloom, The Dry, The Undoing), Jodi Matterson, and Steve Hutensky serve as executive producers for Made Up Stories, alongside Mia Freedman, Asher Keddie and Sarah Scheller, Brian Walsh and Alison Hurbert-Burns for Binge.
Writing for Mamamia about the making of Strife, Mia Freedman said, “I had no interest in making a show about myself and Bruna agreed. We wanted to tell a story about a complicated woman who starts her own business. About the complexity of ambition and motherhood, and the force that is female friendship. About what it’s like working in a startup alongside women, creating intimate content that bonds you in ways that can be intense and problematic and wonderful.
“It’s not a story about me but it’s inspired by aspects of my life and career during the time Mamamia started and began to grow.”
