Ten can't get enough of Offspring's Asher Keddie.

It's television's creative relationship which has resulted in everything from Love My Way to Offspring.

Now John Edwards is creating another series for one of his favourite actors, Gold Logie winner Asher Keddie.

The new drama Party Tricks will centre on two lead characters, Kate Ballard (played by Keddie) and David McLeod (played by Rodger Corser), who once had a love affair.

More Aussie drama ... Rodger Corser will star opposite Asher Keddie in Party Tricks.

The storyline has political overtones with the six-part series based on a “cat and mouse game which culminates in an election night finale,” according to a Ten statement about the show.

Edwards and Imogen Banks from Southern Star Entertainment specifically pitched Party Tricks to Ten as another project for Keddie, alongside Corser who stars in Puberty Blues.

“Imogen and I were looking for a vehicle for Rodger and for Asher ... it was developed with them in mind,” Edwards says.

Keddie is, of course, still playing Nina Proudman in Ten's Offspring, with her character due to give birth during this season of the show.

It may leave Offspring fans wondering about Keddie's ongoing involvement in their beloved program but Edwards was quick to deny any suggestion Offspring would be affected by the creation of Party Tricks.

“No, no, no, no, it's a completely different type of show,” Edwards said. “We're doing series five of Offspring and we're actually plotting [Party Tricks] now, we're underway and we've written the first episode.”

Corser has been filming the US show Camp, alongside Rachel Griffiths, in northern NSW and is of course also working on the second series of Puberty Blues for Ten.

The announcement of Party Tricks adds to Ten's already promising list of new Australian dramas. The much-anticipated romantic drama Wonderland, with cast members including Brooke Satchwell and Michael Dorman, is due to air on the network later this year.

Party Tricks will be filmed in Melbourne.
