AN AMBITIOUS REPORTER SETS OUT TO MAKE IT IN THE FREELANCE NEWS WORLD, DESPITE THE FACT HE'S COMPLETELY UNINFORMED.
In 2016, a camera crew started following a recent journalism graduate of Petersham TAFE, ANG Wilson, formerly known as Jia Zhang Lee. Ang wants to become a monster in the news world, but everyone needs to start somewhere.
In order to make his dream happen he’s enlisted disgruntled wedding photographer, MANDY. There’s no money yet, so he’s paying her with free board in his apartment. Considering it’s Sydney- that’s a pretty good deal. Mandy’s just happy to take a break from the wedding business because she f***ing hates weddings.
Ang finds the stories and Mandy films them. The only problem being that Ang has no interest in the specifics of the news and prefers to just get the vibe. This leads to reports vaguely about corruption, hyperventilating rants the dangers of J-walking and a sweet little tale about a cat they adopt called Annabel… after Annabel Crabb of course.
Over six 5 minute episodes Ang and Mandy will try to crack the freelance news world. Will Ang Wilson be Australia’s next news star? Who knows, but he’s going to give it a good enough go and drag Mandy along to be his witness/accomplice.
WATCH SEASON 1 BELOW: And SEASON 2:
Ang Wilson is a mockumentary web series set around the very outer fringe of the news world, with a dash of “The Office” and a small helping of “Spinal Tap”.
Ang Wilson is definitely a good news story.
