SBS is poised to pro­voke

The Courier-Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

SBS is dou­bling down on its provoca­tive Aus­tralian fac­tual con­tent in 2018 with a whop­ping 29 com­mis­sions in­clud­ing a live ver­sion of Go Back to Where You Came From. The broad­caster is also set to un­veil the sec­ond sea­son of con­tro­ver­sial poverty series Strug­gle Street later this month.

SBS’s 2018 drama slate is headed by Bris­bane’s Safe Har­bour and Dead Lucky with

Yo­son An and Rachel Grif­fiths (above). Next year SBS will also screen a Big Brother- style show, Mus­lims Like Us, which sees 10 Aus­tralian Mus­lims move into a house to­gether for eight days. Is Aus­tralia Sex­ist? will also raise de­bate. An­other show, Marry Me, Marry My Fam­ily heads into

Mar­ried at First Sight ter­ri­tory as it fol­lows the progress of Aussie mixed-race mar­riages. It is based on the in­sight that one in three wed­dings in Aus­tralia now is mul­ti­cul­tural.

Go Back Live, the fourth sea­son of Go Back to Where

You Came From, will fea­ture crosses to a group of Aussies trav­el­ling to refugee hot spots across mul­ti­ple con­ti­nents.
