Small Town Hackers was the first ever Australian series to be commissioned by Above Average, the US digital studio founded by legendary comedy producer Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Portlandia). The 6-part series stars 2018 Barry Award-winning Sydney comedian Sam Campbell, theatre performers and devisers Tim Watts and Adriane Daff from The Last Great Hunt and Trystan Go, star of The Family Law on SBS.
When Alex Gout (Tim Watts) returns to his backwater hometown of Durran, he is shocked to discover the police lied about the death of his high school sweetheart, Lucy Boddington (Caris Eves). Alex must enlist the help of his idiot younger brother Devon (Same Campbell) and his ragtag gang of wannabe hackers (Adriane Daff and Trystan Go) to get to the bottom of the mystery.
After premiering on Above Average in 2017, the entire series is set for release on YouTube later this year!
