Itch is an Australian children's action-adventure television series which first screened on ABC Me on 15 January 2020. The 10 part action adventure series is based on the books written by Simon Mayo. It is directed by Renée Webster and Nicholas Verso. It also airs on the CBBC Channel in the United Kingdom.

The series was shot in Albany and Perth, Western Australia in early 2019.


Itchingham Lofte loves science, especially chemistry. Itch is also an element-hunter, that is, he is collecting all the elements in the periodic table, with some interesting and rather destructive results in his bedroom. Itch then discovers a new element, which has never been seen before. At first no one believes him, but soon someone wants the strange new rock for himself. Itch and his family are catapulted into a breathless adventure with terrifyingly high stakes.
