200 episodes of Adam Liaw, New Gold Mountain and other programming highlights

SBS has unveiled an ambitious slate for 2021, anchored by Australian dramas, food programs including a weeknight Adam Liaw series, documentaries, digital originals and prestigious international TV shows.

The centrepiece of SBS’s 2021 upfront presentation was five locally commissioned drama series, including three hour-longs and two short-form digital shows.

New Gold Mountain, which has already started production in Victoria, will tell the story of Australia’s gold rush from the perspective of Chinese miners, an important but often overlooked part of our history. The series will centre on a murder mystery but will interweave the stories of various characters.

Starring Yoson An, Alyssa Sutherland, Christopher James Baker, Mabel Li and Dan Spiegelman, the four-part New Gold Mountain is directed by Corrie Chen and produced through Goalpost Television.
