Six-part satirical comedy C*A*U*G*H*T is currently filming in Sydney. It follows four Australian soldiers sent on a secret mission to a war-torn country: mistaken for Americans, they are captured by freedom fighters and produce a hostage video that goes viral. When the soldiers reach celebrity status, they realise that being caught might just be the best thing that could’ve happened to them.
Created by actor Kick Gurry (Edge of Tomorrow) who directs, produces, writes and stars in the series, this looks set to be a stand-out addition to Stan’s 2023 lineup, with star Sean Penn saying:
“Kick’s brand of irreverence is so charged by an enthusiasm for all things considered inappropriate. From ball-sacks, to fame, idiots and intellectuals, and finally to that creepy-crawly continuum of war. “Caught” captures the comedy that is generally confined to fox holes…”Sean Penn
The cast also includes Matthew Fox (Stan Original Series Last Light), Bella Heathcote (Stan Original Series Bloom), Bryan Brown (Stan Original Series Bloom) and Erik Thomson (Black Snow), Ben O’Toole (Detroit), Lincoln Younes (Last King of the Cross), Alexander England (upcoming Stan Original Series Black Snow), Mel Jarnson (Mortal Kombat), Fayssal Bazzi (Stateless), Dorian Nkono (The Twelve) and Rebecca Breeds (Stan Exclusive Series Clarice).
Alongside legendary production designer Sam Hobbs, Alien Proof revelled in the chance to build this irreverent comedy.
