Surf drama Barons to air on CW in the US

The ABC's Barons is heading to America at a primetime broadcast slot for The CW's summer lineup.

The Australian surf drama Barons has been acquired by US network The CW for its summer lineup, and it’s set to debut this month.

The AACTA-nominated series is a coming-of-age story that delves into the creation of the Australian surf industry in the 1970s.

Two best friends, inspired by their love for the Australian beach, create rival surf brands that become successful and tear them apart. The young rebels find themselves pulled deep into a world of corporate politics, jealousy, homophobia, and racial tension.
