This global se­ries will show­case 47 co­me­di­ans from 13 re­gions in eight lan­guages, in an un­prece­dented standup com­edy ex­pe­ri­ence.

The se­ries will fea­ture a range of stand-up spe­cials from co­me­di­ans di­verse in style, gen­der and eth­nic­ity.


If mys­tery is some­thing you are into, then I Am the Night is right up your al­ley.

Di­rected by Patty Jenk­ins (Won­der Woman), and star­ring Chris Pine (Star Trek, Won­der Woman) and In­dia Eis­ley (Un­der­world: Awak­en­ing), the se­ries has been de­scribed as “a grip­ping mys­tery in­spired by real events”.

The se­ries fol­lows Fauna Hodel (Eis­ley) who is an adopted teenager in­ves­ti­gat­ing the se­crets of her past. This leads her on a sin­is­ter trail to Dr Ge­orge Hodel, an in­fa­mous Hol­ly­wood gy­nae­col­o­gist who was in­volved in the leg­endary Black Dahlia mur­ders in 1947.


Aus­tralian com­edy does not get much bet­ter than ABC’s Rose­haven. Back for yet an­other sea­son, the laughs do not stop in this fan­tas­tic pro­duc­tion.

Luke Mc­Gre­gor stars as Daniel McCallum, who re­turns to his ru­ral Tas­ma­nian home­town, Rose­haven, to help his in­tim­i­dat­ing mother with her real es­tate busi­ness.

Things get weird when his best friend from the main­land, Emma (Celia Pac­quola), turns up as she tries to es­cape her mar­riage.

Run­ning from 1994 to 2006, the se­ries fol­lows the lives and cases of the Vic­to­rian po­lice of­fi­cers work­ing in the fic­tional small town of Mount Thomas.

Star­ring the leg­endary John Wood and Aus­tralian sweet­heart Lisa Mc­Cune, there is no bet­ter way to spend an af­ter­noon than look­ing at a fan­tas­tic lo­cal pro­duc­tion.
