Paramount+ announces the launch of new series, The Betoota Advocate Presents


“The Betoota Advocate does not shy away from the depraved, the cringe, the hilarious and the pathetic”

Paramount+ has announced the launch of the Australian original series, The Betoota Advocate Presents.

As an iconic name on all social media feeds, The Betoota Advocate covers Australia’s most polarising news stories in the new series.
On creating this original series, editor at large Errol Parker and editor Clancy Overell said: “As Australia’s oldest and favourite newspaper, The Betoota Advocate has knocked back countless offers to make all manner of TV shows over the years.
“Finally, Paramount+ and Warner Bros. Australia have agreed to let us make the TV show WE wanted to make, and one that everyone else was too afraid to go near – as well as lining our pockets in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis.
“So, with the universe aligning, we present the modern history of Australia that nobody really talks about… for a reason. This series tackles four pillars of Australian history. Corruption, money, religion and tribalism.
“From the Fine Cotton racing scandal, to Murdoch and Packer trading blows in the Super League war, to the rise and fall of the Hillsong Church, to riots on Cronulla beach.
“The Betoota Advocate does not shy away from the depraved, the cringe, the hilarious and the pathetic.”

The Betoota Advocate Presents is coming soon and is produced by Warner Bros. Australia for Paramount+.
The Betoota Advocate Presents joins a host of the Paramount+ Australian Originals currently streaming on Paramount+, including Last King of The Cross, Five Bedrooms, The Bridge Australia, The Secrets She Keeps, 6 Festivals, More Than This, Undressed, Couples Therapy Australia and Spreadsheet with Appleton Ladies Potato Race, One Night and NCIS: Sydney streaming soon.

This comes after The Betoota Advocate announced its partnership with Amazon Australia to further Alexa’s Aussie education.

As of May last year, Alexa has added new local slang to her lingo with terms like “Dog’s Eye” and “Rissole”, plus new terms like “Bachelor’s Handbag,” and “Foot Falcon,” as she continues to become more Aussie!
