The Betoota Advocate will begin its conquest of broadcast journalism this week with the launch of their eponymous Paramount+ television series.

Hosted by Editor-in-Chief Clancy Overall (Archer Hamilton) and Editor-at-Large Errol Parker (Charles Single), across four episodes, the last bastion of #realnews and undefeated kings of satire are set to re-examine the controversies that shaped our nation by interviewing the key individuals who lived through it all.

“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,” said Clancy Overall and Errol Parker.

“Finally, Paramount Plus 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.”

The duo added: “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.”

In just a few short years since making the switch from traditional print to digital circa 2014, Clancy Overall and Errol Parker have effectively established one of the southern hemisphere’s most influential news portals – attracting the attention of everyone from prime ministers to film stars.

Check out the trailer above and be sure to catch The Betoota Advocate Presents on Paramount+ from June 14th, 2023 (tomorrow).
