In Australia there are more kebab shops than big name hamburger outlets. Every week countless kebabs are devoured by late night revelers and people looking for a cheap meal. But what really goes on in the world of kebabs? KEBAB KINGS is a three part series that lifts the lid on a hidden multicultural institution, the great Australian kebab shop. The series features a fascinating collection of compelling, sometimes shocking and often thought provoking moments. And a cast of eccentric, loveable, and sometimes controversial character.
KEBAB KINGS’ fixed-rig cameras follow two kebab shops; one on Sydney’s ‘notorious ‘Angry Mile’, and another in Melbourne’s newest hipster capital, Collingwood. The producers filmed across three of the busiest weeks of the year – in the lead up to Christmas. Amidst the shimmering heat of rotating meat we see drunken backpackers, late – night revelers and tell the poignant story of the shop owners who are chasing the Australian dream. An Australian first, this series offers a rare front –row seat on Australian life. You’ll see customers behaving badly and human behaviour at its best.
