Paramount+ is delighted to announce the ground-breaking, six-part Australian original drama series, More Than This will stream from next month.
Written by teens for teens, More Than This is the real, authentic and often raw story of five 17-year-old students and their teacher, whose diverse worlds collide when they are thrown together into a Year 12 English class.
Creator, writer and lead actor, Olivia Deeble (The Secret Society of Second Born Royals, Home and Away) stars as the series explores the unique challenges facing Australian teenagers as they come of age: social, family and school pressures, bullying, body image, relationships and sexuality.
The diverse cast of characters on More Than This were co-created by Luka Gracie, an 18-year-old trans non-binary actor and filmmaker who also stars, alongside Kamil Ellis (Nowhere Boys), Ellmir Asipi (Neighbours), model/actor Josh Heuston (Dive Club), Oisin O’Leary (Little Lunch), Celine Ajobong (Mustangs FC), Tharanya Tharan (Mustangs FC) and newcomer Selena Brincat, along with theatre and television regular Bert Labonte as their teacher.
, More Than This will stream exclusively from Friday, 4 March on Paramount+
