SBS is poised to provoke
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.
