All Together Now (Channel 9 1991-1993, Jon English. Rebecca Gibney)

All Together Now

Sitcom All Together Now starred rock star Jon English playing to type as fading rock star Bobby Rivers who has life shaken up with the arrival of his fifteen year old twin children, the pair along with their guardian Tracey Lawson, move in with him after the death of their mother. Bobby had been completely oblivious to the existance of the pair and there is a realy clash of attitudes and generations as the new dynamic tries to work together.

The show was to have been originally called Rhythm and Blues but the network thought that sounded too much like a music show!  Kerry Armstrong was amongst the cast members for a few episodes during 1992 and a young Marieke Hardy apparently contributed some scripts towards the end of the shows run.
