SBS to screen new drama focusing on students and social media use July 30, 2019

Young people's explicit use of social media will be one of the focuses of a new mini-series debuting in August on SBS.

 The Hunting, starring Asher Keddie and Richard Roxburgh, tells the story of two high school teachers who discover students are sharing sexually explicit images of their underage peers on social media.\

The themes of the series include misogyny, privacy, sexuality, online exploitation, sexualisation, toxic masculinity, gender and cyberbullying.

The four-part series debuts on Thursday, August 1, and follows the lives of the teachers, their students and their parents in the lead up and subsequent aftermath of the scandal.

The series was filmed in Adelaide.
