October 17, 2023 – Stan, Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions, and global content leader Lionsgate today released first look images of the highly anticipated Stan Original Series Prosper, a family drama taking a provocative peek behind the curtain of power and privilege.

The images feature Richard Roxburgh (Rake, Elvis, Stan Original Series Bali 2002) as Cal Quinn, Founder and Global Pastor of one of the fastest growing megachurches in the world, U Star, alongside Rebecca Gibney (Halifax: Retribution, Back to the Rafters, Wanted) as Abi Quinn, his wife and Worship Leader. A razor-sharp drama of faith, ambition and divided loyalties, Prosper is set in the inner sanctum of a family bound together by unfathomable wealth and unchecked power as they build an evangelical megachurch hell-bent on global domination.

The ensemble cast includes Ewen Leslie (Stan Original Series Bali 2002, The Stranger), Ming-Zhu Hii (La Brea, Peter Rabbit), Jacob Collins-Levy (Stan Original Film True History of the Kelly Gang, The Witcher: Blood Origin), Hayley McCarthy (Sylvie’s Love, The Originals), Jordi Webber (Nomad, Deadlands, Power Ranger) Jacek Koman (Moulin Rouge!, Children of Men, Rake), Andrea Solonge (Class of '07, Privileged), Brigid Zengeni (Stan Original Series Totally Completely Fine, The Secret She Keeps), Alex Fitzalan (The Wilds, Slender Man) and Alexander D’Souza in his acting debut.

The Stan Original Series Prosper follows the Quinns, the founding family behind U Star, based in Sydney, Australia. Poised on the precipice of a lucrative American expansion, the family is about to catapult into a whole new stratosphere of wealth and unchecked power. But behind closed doors, the Quinns are a family protecting shameful secrets – all while preaching a message of faith, love and acceptance to their many thousands of followers. At its heart, Prosper is a razor-sharp study of a damaged family inextricably bound together while tearing themselves apart.
