Australian streaming platform Stan has announced the launch of Revealed, a series that promises to deliver major new documentary content.
Journalist Nick McKenzie leads the series’ first major investigation into the rise of Neo-Nazi groups in Australia. The episode is titled Amongst Us – Neo Nazi Australia, and premieres on 27 March.
The announcement cements Stan and the 9Network’s collaborative partnership, and kicks off a slate of Stan Original Documentaries created in collaboration with journalists, filmmakers and philanthropists from Australia and around the world. The opening episode began its life as a feature on 9Network program 60 Minutes.
‘Working with Stan on the Revealed series has been a great opportunity for our team to build on the compelling story Nick McKenzie told on 60 Minutes and in the SMH and The Age,’ said 60 Minutes Executive Producer Kirsty Thompson. ‘Nick’s work with producer Joel Tozer exposed serious threats from neo-Nazi organisations in this country. Everyone at 60 Minutes is very proud of this investigation and pleased it will reach new audiences on Stan’.
Amongst Us – Neo Nazi Australia follows ‘a brave undercover individual who infiltrates the National Socialist Network – Australia’s largest far-right extremist network – and exposes the everyday Aussies at the centre of the organisation and the lengths they go to extend their influence’.
Revealed will then venture into the deeply disturbing story of the Frankston murders with episode two: The Price of Hate. Episode three, Reefshot, will point its lens towards our Great Barrier Reef and the effects of climate change on our ocean’s biodiversity.
‘Australians have an insatiable appetite for documentaries,’ Stan Chief Content Officer Cailah Scobie said ‘Revealed will be a series of important stories told by the world’s best journalists and documentary filmmakers — with the chance to shift the debate and impact the lives of many Australians. We thank our partners for their support on this newly announced slate, including Screen Australia, screen agencies around the country, and the talented independent producers, directors and Nine producers and journalists who bring us these ground-breaking documentaries’.
You can catch the series premiere, Amongst Us, from 27 March on Stan.
