Australian sitcom, “Metro Sexual” has landed multiple streaming arrangements in North America.

It will premiere in the U.S. on Sept. 1 on the free streaming service Crackle, and on Canada’s OUTtvGo and OUTtv’s Apple TV from the same date. It will then play on Prime Channels in Canada.

“Metro Sexual” is the first Australian sitcom with all LGBTIQ lead characters. Filmed in mockumentary style, it starts with the serious premise that, thanks to dating apps, more people are catching sexually transmitted infections than ever before. The comedy episodes follow the lives of doctors Stephanie Huddleston (Geraldine Hickey) and Langdon Marsh (Riley Nottingham), who work at Metropolitan Sexual Health clinic.
