JULY 13, 2017 – Australia’s leading local streaming service Stan announced today that its latest Stan Original series, THE OTHER GUY, will premiere exclusively on August 17.
Created by and starring leading Australian comedy talent, Matt Okine, THE OTHER GUY is a funny, raw and poignant look at break-ups in the modern age and at the harsh reality of recovering from heartbreak.

The 6 x half hour comedy drama series follows a successful radio host, AJ Amon, who finds himself unexpectedly back in the dating pool for the first time in a decade, after discovering his long-term girlfriend has been having an affair with his best friend.
Filmed on location across Sydney earlier this year, THE OTHER GUY is written by Okine and Becky Lucas (Please Like Me) and script produced by Greg Waters (Soul Mates, Dance Academy). Directed by Kacie Anning (Fragments of Friday), the series is produced by Aquarius Films (six-time Academy Award nominated film Lion and Berlin Syndrome) and global studio Entertainment One/eOne (Designated Survivor, Sharp Objects) who will also distribute the series internationally.
