It’s not all tinsel and bingeing in the festive season as Stan pushes out some original Australian content to stake its claim for local audiences. ABC rounds out a year of inclusive programming by focussing on disabled filmmakers before the last episode of Tracey Spicer’s investigation of sexual harassment. Foxtel brings Tim Minchin back to the small screen while Netflix delivers a sleigh-full of comedy specials.
As well as its usual lineup of classics (which will include all of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and up to season 13 of Grey’s Anatomy by the end of the week!), Stan is bringing the original content. 13 December will see the second season of The Other Guy hit our screens. And on Christmas Day, we will be given the gift of The Commons, an eight part cli-fi drama with a heavy focus on relationships.
