Upcoming ABC drama The Heights screened three episodes at Rooftop Cinemas in Northbridge last night prior to the launch of the series nationally on February 22 at 8.30 PM . Screenwest conducted the event with cocreator  Warren Clarke and producer Peta Astbury in attendance.

Co‐creator of the series Warren Clarke says the joy of THE HEIGHTS lies in its characters, and the way they deal with whatever slings and arrows life throws at them.

“It’s a diverse community, but this series doesn’t seek to exploit the things that make us different but rather explore and celebrate the things that ultimately make us all the same.

“This isn’t story about good versus evil or rich versus  poor; it’s about the very unifying experience of trying to make one’s way in the world, and the family you surround yourself with, whether by bloodline or by circumstance,” he said.

The hefty 30 part half hour drama by Matchbox Pictures in association with For Pete’s Sake Productions filmed two episodes a week using four or more handheld cameras in fully enclosed sets at Perth ABC studios and on location.
