SBS unveils first fun look at ‘The Unusual Suspects’

The four-part heist caper from Aquarius will premiere June 3. The first major series to represent Filipino-Australians, it's looks delightfully light, diverse and female-driven.

‘Grab your squad and make a date with The Unusual Suspects.’ So says SBS, announcing the premiere date for the four-part heist caper: Thursday June 3 at 8.30pm with all episodes available immediately via its On Demand service.

The trailer was also unveiled this week and personally, I can’t wait for this one. It looks fun, funny and empowering (as it says on the tin), and is set in ‘Sydney’s glamorous Eastern suburbs’ where a diverse girl gang gathers to lift a $16 million necklace. Looks a bit Oceans 8 but with Filipino-Australians, Miranda Otto as a rich bitch and lots of harbour views.
