An elite team of Aussie soldiers is sent to an island nation to retrieve a secret file that has gone astray. Mistaken for Americans, they are captured by freedom fighters and produce a hostage video that goes viral. When the soldiers achieve celebrity status on social media, they realize that being caught might just be the best thing that could’ve happened to them.
“C*A*U*G*H*T” explores themes of identity, fame, and the absurdity of the viral age. “Why can’t we comedically deconstruct the intellectual ideas that humanity is facing right now?” says Kick Gurry who directs, produces and stars in the six-part series.
Starring Sean Penn, Matthew Fox, Bryan Brown, Susan Sarandon, Travis Fimmel, Nisrine Amine, Helen Chebatte, Simon Elrahi, C*A*U*G*H*T is described as a ‘wildly irreverent, star-studded, surprisingly big-looking comedy series’ – it is this and more, a ribald take on celebrity culture and the lengths we go to get what we want.
