Set to hit Australian screens on September 28, 2023, C*A*U*G*H*T is already touted to be legendary… and starring Sean Penn, Matthew Fox, Bryan Brown, Susan Sarandon, Travis Fimmel, Nisrine Amine, Helen Chebatte, Simon Elrahi and four elite soldiers sent to the island nation of Behati-Prinsloo, we can see why, with hype increasing exponentially for its September 28 release on Stan.
Alongside acclaimed production designer Sam Hobbs, Alien Proof Construction was responsible for creating the fictitious Asian island, with some of the crew choosing to wear pith helmets on set to channel the vibe…
Mistaken for Americans, Lincoln Younes, Ben O’Toole, Kick Gurry and Alexander England 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.
Exploring themes of identity, fame, and the absurdity of the viral age, director Kick Gurry asks the question: “Why can’t we comedically deconstruct the intellectual ideas that humanity is facing right now?” To which people are responding with glee.
Described by Variety 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.
