Australia / ABC Network from 31 October @ 9.30pm

A wickedly funny new comedy series begins on the ABC at the end of the month, doing for Libraries what Summer Heights High did for High School.

Created by and starring husband and wife team Robyn Butler and Wayne Hope, The Librarians sees Robyn playing head librarian Frances O'Brien, a devout catholic and very highly strung individual who has her cosy little work place turned around when she gives her best friend Christine (Roz Hammond) a job after she gets in trouble with the law. Alongside these are the usual bunch of sitcom misfits but the cast and playing is top notch, from the briliant Bob Franklin to Kim Gyngell and newcomer Keith Brockett.

Definitely one to put a good book down for.
