Based on the books by Danny Katz and Mitch Vane, the Little Lunch TV series is set in an Australian primary school, with each episode taking place during recess time. The issues and events explored in this ‘mockumentary’ comedy series are representational of students’ own lives, which has contributed to the ongoing popularity of the series.
