Stan’s new comedy series The Other Guy, starring Matt Okine, will debut on Thursday August 17.
Also created by Matt Okine, the 6 part series looks at break-ups in the modern age and at the harsh reality of recovering from heartbreak. He stars as a successful radio host, AJ Amon, who finds himself unexpectedly back in the dating pool for the first time in a decade, after discovering his long-term girlfriend has been having an affair with his best friend.
The cast includes Valene Kane (The Fall, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Harriet Dyer (No Activity, Love Child), Marg Downey (Fast Forward, Kath & Kim), Christiaan van Vuuren (Soul Mates, Bondi Hipsters), Adam Briggs (Cleverman, Black Comedy) along with composer, performer and rising star Amali Golden (Australian Idol).
Filmed on location across Sydney earlier this year, The Other Guy is written by Okine and Becky Lucas (Please Like Me) and script produced by Greg Waters (Soul Mates, Dance Academy). Directed by Kacie Anning (Fragments of Friday), the series is produced by Aquarius Films (six-time Academy Award nominated film Lion and Berlin Syndrome) and global studio Entertainment One/eOne (Designated Survivor, Sharp Objects) who will also distribute the series internationally. The Other Guy has received production investment funding from Screen Australia in association with Create NSW.
