Stan’s Thou Shalt Not Steal, Paramount+ Fake at London TV Screenings

Dramas with Noah Taylor, Miranda Otto, Asher Keddie & Richard Roxburgh on show to international media buyers.

Australian dramas are amongst those featuring at the London TV Screenings currently showcasing distributor content.

The trade event screens international scripted and unscripted formats to media buyers.

Two which have been highlighted by Variety are Stan’s upcoming Stan’s Thou Shalt Not Steal by Director and co-creator Dylan River and Paramount+ series Fake by Kindling Pictures.

Thou Shalt Not Steal (DCD Rights)
It’s time to hit the road in this sun-drenched drama, set in Central and South Australia all the way back in the 1980s. Desperate to find the truth behind a family secret, young Aboriginal delinquent Robyn finally escapes from detention and ends up teaming up with awkward teenager Gidge. The unlikely duo – forced together by circumstances, not by choice – leaves Gidge’s small desert community behind and sets out on a dangerous yet life-changing journey across the outback, followed by a sex worker, whose taxi Robyn just stole, and Gidge’s overbearing father Robert. Noah Taylor (recently spotted in “A Small Light” and “Foundation”), Miranda Otto, Sherry-Lee Watson and Will McDonald (both seen in “Heartbreak High”) star. A Ludo Studio/Since1788 Production for Stan, with production funding from Screen Australia and in association with South Australian Film Corporation & Screen Territory.

Fake (Lionsgate)
Asher Keddie (“Nine Perfect Strangers”) plays a magazine features journalist who falls for a wealthy rancher (David Wenham, “Pieces of Her”), suppressing her instinct that things don’t add up. A tense and exhilarating story of deception – about the lies we are told and the lies we tell ourselves,” says Lionsgate, created by screenwriter Anya Beyersdorf with Emma Freeman (“The Newsreader”) for Paramount+ Australia. 

Both series are yet to have Australian dates announced.

Apples Never Fall was also in Variety’s Top 20 picks.
