It's time to make a few additions to your upcoming must-watch list after Stan today announced a whole new slate of Stan Originals are in the works.
The announcement comes hot on the heels of Stan’s confirmation that they have expanded their partnership with Roadshow Rough Diamond, in addition to partnering with the Australian Children’s Television Foundation, to create a new feature film production fund.
The newly announced lineup of Stan Originals includes the very festive sounding Christmas on the Farm, which is an upcoming holiday film starring Poppy Montgomery, Hugh Sheridan, Darren McMullen, and Nicholas Brown.
The movie follows Clementine Jones (Montgomery), an Australian author whose autobiographical book about life on a Queensland farm is snapped up by powerful publishers.
But what's really happening behind the scenes is that “Clementine” is actually Emmy Jones – a New York socialite who has been passing her late mother’s journals off as her own.
Also in the works is a project called Bad Behaviour, which is a four-part series based on the acclaimed book of the same name by Australian writer Rebecca Starford.
The series is set to offer a visceral and poignant look into the epicentre of the teenage years – where the most crucial decision of the day is to bully or be bullied.
The Stan Original will offer up a glimpse into the lives of teenage girls at the wilderness campus of an exclusive girls boarding school. It's a world of intense friendships, gruelling physical punishments, shifting loyalties and a ruthless struggle for power.
