True Story with Hamish & Andy brings to life the best Australian tales you’ve never heard, told by the very people who experienced them and then humorously and cinematically realised through dramatic recreations.
In each half-hour episode Hamish and Andy meet an everday Australian storyteller who recounts an amazing, surprising, funny and above all true story, which is simultaneously recreated by a cast of Australia’s most renowned performers.
The first series was a smash hit, acclaimed by critics and viewers alike. Each episode was watched by more than two million people (including encore screenings and streaming on 9Now), making True Story one of the most successful new program launches in recent years.
And in a massive nod to the program’s broad family appeal, it was announced today that Warner Bros. International Television Production had acquired the rights to launch the format to global audiences at MIPCOM in Cannes next week.
Hamish & Andy will return with ten more hilarious and astonishing true stories in 2018.
“The show captures us hearing these stories for the very first time, so it’s exciting to think people at home will be having the exact same reactions as us on screen,” Hamish said.
