On The Ropes

On The Ropes, also nominated for Most Outstanding Miniseries or Telemovie, stars Nicole Chamoun as aspiring Iraqi-Australian boxing trainer Amirah Al-Amir. Amirah works in the family gym in Sydney’s western suburbs alongside her two brothers and has idolised her world champion father Sami (Igal Naor, Homeland) her entire life.

But when Amirah negotiates a professional debut match for her hardnosed fighter Jess O’Connor, played by Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (Game Of ThronesWhale Rider), her father is furious that she’s gone behind his back and threatens to cut her off. Desperate to chase her dream of transforming women’s boxing, will Amirah choose her fighter or her family?

Also featuring Jack Thompson as Sami’s long-time promoter Strick, On The Ropes is compelling Australian drama. The four-part series is also streaming in Arabic or Chinese. 

Dead Lucky

Starring Emmy and Academy Award nominated Rachel Griffiths as Detective Grace Gibbs, Dead Lucky centres on Gibbs’ determination to avenge the murder of her junior officer. Partnered with rookie detective Charlie Fung (Chinese born New Zealand actor Yoson An, Mulan), the pair delve into Sydney’s dark side to solve the case.

Logie nominee Ian Meadows (The Wrong GirlThe Moodys), nominated for Most Outstanding Supporting Actor, plays bad guy Corey Baxter in a role you’ve never seen him in before.  

Dead Lucky is also streaming in Chinese.
