Minis­eries: Sun­shine

The Western Star - - LIFE TV GUIDE -

Wed­nes­day, sbs, 8.30pm

It fea­tures a stel­lar cast and an en­gross­ing crime mys­tery, but the stand-out fea­ture of this well-made Aussie drama is its South Su­danese cast and char­ac­ters. Ar­guably the first drama on Aussie TV to high­light the strug­gles faced by our African mi­grant com­mu­nity, Sun­shine is a se­ri­ous story, co­cooned by a love of bas­ket­ball. Star­ring An­thony Paglia and Vince Colosimo, we follow the life of aspir­ing South Su­danese-Aus­tralian bas­ket­ball player Ja­cob (Wally El­nour, pic­tured), liv­ing in the tit­u­lar Mel­bourne sub­urb, who is close to join­ing the US col­lege bas­ket­ball league. But his dreams may be shat­tered when he is caught up in a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion.
