Gruen on ABC – Oh, great. Here comes another ad. You can’t go anywhere without being bombarded with ads these days.
Ads are in the algorithm, on the airwaves, on billboards, on buses, and buildings, on cars, clothes and even our coffee.
Speaking of the ABCs and advertising, did you know that this very paragraph contains an ad for Gruen, Australia’s most beloved and only show about advertising, which is returning for an unprecedented 15th season.
Wil Anderson will be joined by television’s best panel of advertising know-it-alls, including Russel Howcroft, Todd Sampson, Karen Ferry, Dee Madigan, and Christina Aventi, plus many more favourites. Collect them all!
Like the Big Banks, we’re here for you. Like insurance companies, we get you. If TikTok made you buy it, we’ll make you return it. Stop acting under the influence and start watching a brand new season of Gruen.
Gruen – the multi-award winning, multi-award losing, multi-award snubbed tribute to truth in advertising – is back for your viewing pleasure, whether it’s on ABC TV, ABC iview, or as most shows are seen these days, illegally downloaded, edited into out-of-context chunks, and uploaded onto TikTok to help someone sell vintage t-shirts and sunset lamps.
Production credit: A CJZ and ABC co-production. Executive producers: Nick Murray, Wil Anderson and Polly Connolly. ABC Executive Producer Rachel Millar.
Gruen – Wednesday 21 June, 2023 at 8.30pm on ABC and ABC iview
