Stan, Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions, today released the trailer for the brand new Stan Original Series Bad Behaviour premiering next month.
Produced by Matchbox Pictures, which is part of Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group, the series is led by Jana McKinnon (We Children from Bahnhof Zoo), alongside Markella Kavenagh (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, the Stan Original Series The Gloaming), and Yerin Ha (Halo). Bad Behaviour is a four-part visceral ride into the epicentre of our teenage experience where the question is to bully or be bullied in the unrelenting struggle for acceptance and social power.
When 25-year-old Jo Mackenzie (Jana McKinnon) bumps into her old school friend Alice Kang (Yerin Ha), memories of the brutal year they spent together at Silver Creek – the wilderness campus of an exclusive boarding school – come flooding back.
With an ensemble cast including Erana James (The Wilds), AACTA Award winning Tuuli Narkle (Mystery Road: Origin), Dan Spielman (Stateless, New Gold Mountain), Diana Glenn (Harrow, Reckoning), Mantshologane Maile (The PM’s Daughter) and newcomers Melissa Kahraman, Daya Czepanski, Bronte Locke, Abbey Morgan, Malaynee Hayden and Jessica Lu.
Bad Behaviour is an emotionally and physically intense deep dive into the lives of teenage girls. Exploring the complicated nature of desire, memory and sexuality within the confines of a prestigious girls boarding school. Bad Behaviour is played out across past and present timelines. The series reveals that even 10 years on from our high school years, no one escapes unscathed – and often, we are scarred for life.
Led by an all-female creative team, the Stan Original Series is written by Pip Karmel (Total Control, New Gold Mountain) and Magda Wozniak (The Messenger, While The Men Are Away), produced by Amanda Higgs (The Secret Life of Us, Barracuda), and directed by Corrie Chen (New Gold Mountain, Homecoming Queens).
The brand new Stan Original Series Bad Behaviour premieres 17 February, all episodes at once and only on Stan.
