Baywatch Unplugged
Produced by: Nick Franklin
The show Baywatch has commanded audiences for years, its concept was simple and entertaining. Its successor has followed suit consisting of Californian actors as lifeguards saving lives on an Australian beach. But since the shows creation, there has been as much, if not more drama behind the camera as there is in front of it. Unfortunately the makers of Baywatch never asked the residents of Sydney's Avalon beach to share their beloved property and learned one of life's most valuable lessons: never mess with a surfer's turf. Producer Nick Franklin of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation shows, BAYWATCH UNPLUGGED reveals how a divided community overthrew Hollywood and survived each other.
