Aussie movie fans can finally get their hands on the first-ever Australian-made webcast of the popular black comedy Black America, which hits the streaming platform in October.
The first episode was released on Tuesday and was watched by more than 2 million Australians.
It will air on ABC TV and ABC TV Kids on Thursday.
“It’s very exciting to be able to showcase this first Australian-produced webcast on Australian television, which has had such a massive impact on the way Australians see and understand Black America,” said co-producer David MacLeod.
“There’s a great deal of potential here, but it’s also about bringing out the best in the most talented people who can create and deliver the best of the best.”
“We’re really looking forward to watching this in person and getting the audience excited about this new chapter in the history of Black American cinema.”
The show, which stars Jason Bateman, is about a black man who has moved to a remote, white suburb after being kicked out of the community.
It is the latest addition to the Netflix catalogue for Australia and will be available on October 12.
Netflix has released a selection of original Australian films, including The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and The Black Cat.
The Australian production team has also released the Australian version of The Black Swan, which also stars Jason Katims, while a live stream of the first Australian webcast will be broadcast on the ABC’s online streaming service.
Netflix is also set to launch in Australia this month with a new series of animated films called Big Time and a new animated series about the late comedian Chris Rock.
