New Josh Thomas comedy Everything’s Gonna Be Okay from Josh Thomas will screen on Stan from mid-January, same day as the US.
The 10 part US produced series sees Thomas (Please Like Me) again as creator, star, showrunner and executive producer.
Nicholas (Josh Thomas) is a neurotic twenty-something-year-old visiting his dad and teenage half-sisters – one of whom is on the autism spectrum. When Nicholas’ trip is extended due to his father’s untimely death, the siblings are left to cope with not only a devastating loss, but also the realisation that Nicholas is the one who will have to rise to the occasion, move in, and hold it all together.
Navigating autism, budding sexuality, consent, parenthood, adolescence, family and grief, the heartfelt comedy will follow this imperfect family as they discover the importance of finding happiness in the middle of really difficult moments, one awkward conversation at a time.
“Finding an Australian home for Everything’s Gonna Be Okay that could air the episodes at the same time as the US was super important to me and I’m just so glad we found that in Stan, alongside their other cool, boundary pushing offerings,” said Thomas.
David Martin, Jon Thoday and Richard Allen-Turner serve as executive producers for Avalon Television, with Stephanie Swedlove and Kevin Whyte also serving as executive producers. The series is produced by Avalon Television and Freeform, and also stars Kayla Cromer, Maeve Press and Adam Faison.
Friday 17 January on Stan, with new episodes weekly.
