Rebecca Gibney And Richard Roxburgh Play Aussie Evangelical Megachurch Founders In ‘Prosper’

A superstar cast of Australian actors take on the new Stan family drama series.

It’s always exciting when a group of Australian actors join forces for new film or TV series, especially when the filming also takes place in the country—which is exactly what we can expect from the new Stan Original Series, Prosper.

The highly anticipated series sees Rake star Richard Roxburgh play a global pastor and founder of a megachurch, with Rebecca Gibney taking on the role of his wife and worship leader. If that isn’t enough to get you interested, the series also follows the couple’s children in a Succession-style family drama. 

So, what else can we expect from the upcoming series? Everything we know about the show, below.

What Is Prosper About? 

Prosper follows the Quinn family—the founding family behind an evangelical megachurch called U Star. 

When the show begins, the Quinns, who are based in Sydney, are “poised on the precipice of a lucrative American expansion” and “about to catapult into a whole new stratosphere of wealth and unchecked power.” 

However, while preaching “faith, love and acceptance” to their thousands of followers, the Quinns are also hiding “shameful” secrets and are “bound together by unfathomable wealth and unchecked power as they build an evangelical megachurch hell-bent on global domination” 

Basically, things are about to get very interesting for the family.
