Bondi Hipsters co-creator Nick Boshier and Tonightly’s Jazz Twemlow have joined forces with Bunya Entertainment and Amazon Studios to create The Moth Effect.

Together with some of Australia and New Zealand’s finest talent including Bryan Brown, Miranda Otto, David Wenham, Ben Lawson, Jonny Brugh, Peter O’Brien, Kate Box, Sam Cotton, Megan Wilding, Christiaan van Vuuren, Sarah Bishop, Nazeem Hussain, David Woodhead and Zoë Coombs Marr, The Moth Effect is set to deliver the finest sketch comedy for Amazon Prime members.
