The second series of the refreshingly inappropriate, thought-provoking and enlightening series You Can’t Ask That returns to ABC and ABC iview from Thursday 6 April.
Giving an unmediated platform to some of the most misunderstood and marginalised people in our country, You Can’t Ask That offers genuine insight into the lives of Australians with labels. The show’s format is simple – questions are posed to stereotyped groups and they in turn respond direct to camera, with raw and authentic responses drawn from their own experiences.
In its typical stereotype busting style, the new season of You Can’t Ask That premieres with Blind at the special time of 9.30pm on Thursday 6 April immediately following the final episode of Stargazing Live. The series will then move to its regular timeslot of Wednesday 9pm from 12 April. Episodes will be available to binge watch on ABC iview immediately after the premiere episode, including three iview exclusive episodes; S&M, Gambling Addicts and Homeless.
At times funny, poignant, offensive and heart-breaking, the show quickly became one of the most watched series in 2016 for ABC iview, with over 1.6 million program plays. Groups answering the questions in this season include Down Syndrome, Suicide Attempt Survivors, Recent War Veterans, Facial Difference and Children of Same Sex Parents.
The series format represented by ABC Commercial has also enjoyed immense success internationally, with sales including the US, Brazil, the Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, Spain and France. It is the strongest selling 100% ABC made format in 10 years and it’s well on the way to becoming the ABC’s biggest format hit.
