When socialite Demetri Lawson, son of the Gold Coast’s notorious Porn King wins partial ownership of a nightclub in a poker game, his sheltered and lavish world is turned upside down; forcing a collision between his privileged lifestyle and a world where rules are exempt.
Upon his parents move to Europe to expand their porn company, Demetri is left 'unleashed' in society; undaunted by his father’s shadow and desperate to become his own man. He takes full advantage of the family estate and bank account left under his control ; convincing his previously estranged and opportunist cousin Kali Harper to move in, acquiring the perfect ‘it girl’ girlfriend and hosting a myriad of lavish parties.
An out of control night leads to a poker game with high stakes in which Demetri wins shared ownership of ‘Society’, one of the Gold Coast’s hottest nightlife venues.
As a new partnership forms with Society’s co-owner Ezra Vasquez and the occupants of Ezra’s life mix with his own, Demetri finds himself out of depth; immersed in the exciting and dangerous nightlife industry of Australia's glittering Gold Coast.
Society is a 10 x 1 hour adult crime drama which merges the modern worlds of privileged and poor alike, an accurate and ruthless ‘Generation Y’ update on 'The O.C' and 'Gossip Girl', whilst inclusive of influences similar to 'Power'.
"Though anchored in the drama of love triangles, ambition and vengeance; Society explores themes of crime, sexual diversity and multiculturalism, serving as a microcosm dominated by socialmedia, globalisation,wealth and geography. Society is an unapologetic journey to answer the question: can humanity and community be found inside a society encumbered by Generation Y"
