Bump is an Australian comedy-drama series about Olympia (‘Oly’) Chalmers-Davis (Nathalie Morris, “Almost Paradise,” “One Lane Bridge”), an overachieving 17-year-old student who knows exactly where she’s going. Her boyfriend, doctor’s son Lachie (Peter Thurnwald, “King Kong: Skull Island,” “Thor: Ragnarok”), ticks all the right boxes; she and her best friend, Reema (Safia Arain, “One Lane Bridge,” “Black Christmas”), share an ambitious 10-year plan: top grades, international relations at a university, work for the UN, save the world.
Oly’s mother Angie (Claudia Karvan, “Love My Way,” “The Secret Life Of Us”) is the head of English at her inner city high school; and her father Dom (Angus Sampson, “Fargo,” “The Lincoln Lawyer”) is a recently unemployed executive who’s been spending nights on his moored boat. Angie and Dom are lost in their own mid-life reckoning.
At school, Oly collapses in agony. She’s sped to hospital in an ambulance, accompanied by Angie, and they are both stunned – horrified! – to discover that Oly is in labor. Blindsided, in deep shock, Oly rejects the baby entirely. If she doesn’t acknowledge the baby, then she doesn’t have to acknowledge how her life has irrevocably changed, or that the baby’s father is not her boyfriend; it’s Santiago “Santi” Hernandez (Carlos Sanson, Jr., “Legacies,” “Malibu Rescue: The Next Wave”), the laid-back son of Angie’s major work crush: Chilean soccer coach Matias (newcomer Ricardo Scheihing-Vasquez).
