Party Tricks is an Australian political drama comedy television series created by Australian producer Michael Lucas (Five Bedrooms, Wentworth) and produced by Endemol Australia for Network Ten and later Eleven as well. The story focuses on the life and career of State Premier Kate Ballard as she is unexpectedly up against a new and popular candidate for the upcoming elections. Things are not what they seem at first glance between Kate and her new opponent David, though. Party Tricks leans on a talented, largely Australian cast led by Australian actress Asher Keddie (Five Mile Creek, Offspring) as Labor Premier of Victoria and Member of Parliament for Richmond and Australian actor Rodger Corser (Underbelly, Doctor Doctor) as Victorian Liberal Party Leader. They are joined by Adam Zwar (Wilfred, Mr. Black) as Trevor Bailey, Angus Sampson (The Mule, Mad Max: Fury Road) as Wayne Duffy, and Kaiya Jones (Neighbours, The Saddle Club) as Matilda McLeod.
