C*A*U*G*H*T: sneak peek

A sneak peek of Karl Stefanovic and Kick Gurry in upcoming new series.

Stan has released a sneak peek of their upcoming series C*A*U*G*H*T, with Karl Stefanovic, Rebecca Breeds, Kick Gurry and Ariel Donoghue.

The biggest ensemble of Hollywood and home-grown talent in an Australian original television production, Stan continues to announce additional cast members, with television presenters Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon joining Ariel Donoghue (Stan Original Series Wolf Like Me) and Rob Carlton (Stan Original Series Black Snow) in the series, alongside recently announced cast members Nicholas Hammond (The Sound of Music) and Silvia Colloca (The Twelve).

Our troops aren’t safe. Neither are our DMs. After the Australian Minister of Defence (Erik Thomson) texts a ‘secret file’ to the Princess of Behati-Prinsloo, a small island nation, he sends four Australian soldiers (Gurry, O’Toole, England and Younes) into the war-torn country on a secret mission to retrieve the file.

Mistaken for Americans, they are captured by freedom fighters (Bazzi, Jarnson and Nkono) and produce a hostage video that goes viral. When the soldiers reach celebrity status on social media, they realise that being caught might just be the best thing that could’ve happened to them. They’re about to make search history.

Director, producer and writer Kick Gurry (Edge of Tomorrow) leads the cast alongside Sean Penn (Gaslit), Matthew Fox (Lost), Bryan Brown (Palm Beach), Ben O’Toole (Detroit), Lincoln Younes (Last King of the Cross), Alexander England (Stan Original Series Black Snow), Susan Sarandon (Blue Beetle), Mel Jarnson (Mortal Kombat), Fayssal Bazzi (Stateless) and Dorian Nkono (The Twelve).

Also starring in the series is Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Rebecca Breeds (Clarice), Tuppence Middleton (Downton Abbey), Bella Heathcote (Stan Original Series Scrublands) and Erik Thomson (Black Snow). The series will be released globally by Fremantle.

Following a deal with Fremantle, the series is due to launch exclusively on new streaming service ITVX in the UK in October 2023.

The Stan Original Series C*A*U*G*H*T is created, produced and directed by Kick Gurry. Sean Penn executive produces alongside producers John Schwarz and Michael Schwarz (Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan, Stan Original Film Gold) from Deeper Water Films, and Brendan Donoghue. C*A*U*G*H*T is executive produced by Cailah Scobie and Amanda Duthie for Stan. The series is produced in association with Fremantle, who will also handle international distribution for the series.

All episodes Thursday 28 September on Stan.

  1. So it’s okay for a kid to call an adult “f…face” on a tv show now….and people wonder why some kids today have no respect for anyone…the youth crime wave around Australia comes to mind…especially the complete disrespect some kids have for police officers etc…..social media is absolute proof of that when it comes to kid verbally abusing and kids thinking it is acceptable….if kids see this regardless of it’s classification…what kind of message is that sending?

    1. Thats precisely why it’s not on FTA & will have a classification appropriate to it’s content. After that its up to parents to do the right thing, which is very easy on Stan.

      1. Just to be clear…any child can access this type of show regardless of classification…when parents are not about…kids get tempted…I will make no apologies for my comments because it is a very common occurrence on tv shows to normalise and accept this kind of language…kids love to replicate an adult.

        1. Stan and many other streamers provide parental controls and kids profile settings specifically so your kids cannot access this type of content on their service if you don’t want them to. If you don’t like it then you, as an adult, can choose not to watch it.

          1. And that is exactly what I intend to kids smarter than a lot of people give them credit for….if you read the eSafety Commission statement it clearly says…No Parental Controls are 100% Effective …I suggest you read…The Digital Parenting Report on their website for the explanation.
