First Episode: 2020
In the quiet Australian country town of Mackaroy, something really strange is happening. The School’s principal has disappeared, the whole town’s internet keeps crashing every night, and people are being watched. Someone, or something, is keeping tabs on everyone who lives there, and best friends Tang and Mitch are on the case. The 14-year-olds have an online show investigating conspiracies, but what they don’t realise is that someone really doesn’t want them to find out the truth. This will be their toughest investigation yet, and they’ll soon learn that what’s at stake is much more than uploading their next show. Eight episodes. Written by Cleon Prineas, Paul Gartside, and Dave Cartel.
