Itch: ABC show starts production in Peel

The ABC show, Itch has made its way to the South West with parts of season two being filmed in Mandurah.

Itch follows the adventures of Itchingham Lofte, a teenager obsessed with science, who pursues the unusual hobby of collecting all the elements on the Periodic Table.

The series is set to feature The Cut golf course and parts of Mandurah's coastline in the newest season.

Screenwest chief executive Willie Rowe said the production of the show in Western Australia would provide opportunities for the local film industry.

"Itch series two marks the recommencement of drama production for WA and significant job opportunities for West Australians," he said.

"We are thrilled that through the support of Screenwest and the Western Australian Regional Film Fund our Great Southern and Peel regions will be showcased on screen."
