Crocodile Dundee's 'Nugget' Gets A Life And Goes Solar
by Energy Matters
Melbourne, Victoria - March 11, 2010. Australian actor Gerry Skilton, who played Nugget in all three Crocodile Dundee movies, is currently filming a new TV series called "Nugget's Get A
Life" - with a little help from solar
Set in outback Queensland, the series will focus on the elusive search for gold using modern technology while looking back at the early history of the pursuit and the old time gold prospector; with Nugget as the show's host.
According to Mr. Skilton, "Nugget's Get A Life will have me take up residence in a camp out west near Clermont QLD. "Nugget" will actually be doing what he is promoting. So this is not a fly in, shoot something and fly out again type of mission. I will be isolated and
dependent on my own skills 80% of the time. "
According to Energy Matters co-founder Max Sylvester, "Who could forget the famous "I've got a donk" line
delivered by Nugget in Crocodile Dundee? Now Nugget will have some real donk in the form of this solar power system providing clean energy to help him in his
adventures. We're eagerly anticipating the first episode of Nugget's Get A Life
and to see the Energy Matters built "Donk" in action!"
Nugget's Get A Life is expected to go to air in 2011 and a DVD will also be produced.
