A 6 x 1-hour limited series, FIGHTING SEASON is about a platoon of soldiers returning from Afghanistan after their section leader is killed in a controversial mission, one marred by bitter mistakes and cover-ups. FIGHTING SEASON is about an Army culture of stoic self-sacrifice that can corrode even the strongest marriage. About the politics of war and the bonds of mateship forged in a war-zone, of experiences so intense that those ‘back home’ in the civilian world can’t understand. And about a secret these men will do anything to keep.
Produced by Kylie du Fresne for Goalpost Pictures with Elisa Argenzio and Blake Ayshord for Foxtel Australia. FIGHTING SEASON will premiere on Foxtel’s Showcase channel on Sunday 28 October 2018.
