3 / 04 / 2020

Premieres Wednesday, March 18 on Super Channel Fuse

EDMONTON (March 4, 2020) Super Channel is pleased to announce that season two of the six-episode half-hour Australian comedy The Other Guy, a funny, raw and poignant series about break-ups in the modern age, will return to Super Channel Fuse on Wednesday, March 18 at 9 p.m. ET. Each episode will also be available on Super Channel On Demand the day following its weekly linear broadcast. Viewers can also catch up on season one of the series, currently available on Super Channel On Demand.

Series creator and leading Australian comedic talent, Matt Okine returns as radio presenter AJ Amon, who now has his eye on a television career. Also returning for season two are Harriet Dyer (No Activity, The In-Between) as his best friend Stevie, Valene Kane (The Fall, Rogue One) as his ex-girlfriend Liv, Michael-Anthony Taylor (Pine Gap) as his dad and Christiaan Van Vuuren (Soul Mates, Bondi Hipsters) as drug dealer Dezzy.

Directed by Gracie Otto (The Last Impresario), the second season also sees some fresh faces joining the cast, including Claudia Karvan (Newton’s Law), Lily Sullivan (Romper Stomper), Matt Day (Wolf Creek), Erin McNaught (Neighbours), Barry Otto (The Dressmaker), Fiona Press (Secret City), Yumi Stynes and Michael Beveridge.

In season two of The Other Guy, AJ Amon has lost everything - his house, his job, his best friend – and to make matters worse he just found out his ex-girlfriend is pregnant - and it may or may not be his. When a producer (Claudia Karvan) approaches AJ about making a TV show about his sh*tty life, he thinks he may finally have an opportunity to get back on top. But how do you make a show about your life without pissing off everyone in it? Will AJ use the show to get revenge on the people who wronged him or will reliving the past only keep him stuck there?

The series is produced by Aquarius Films in association with Wooden Horse and financed with support from Screen Australia and Screen NSW. The Other Guy is distributed outside Australia by Entertainment One (eOne).
