Do you have a burning question to ask a nudist, a ‘Houso’ or a cheater? Or maybe you are living with HIV, are an identical twin or have killed someone?

Then we need you for You Can’t Ask That!

Series 5 of the ABC’s award-winning You Can’t Ask That now in production.

The You Can’t Ask That team has started production on its fifth series and are asking viewers to submit any of the questions that they have always wanted to ask the misunderstood and marginalised groups that feature on this through-provoking and refreshingly bold series.

The most successful original ABC format in decades, the series will return to ABC and ABC iview in 2020 with eight new episodes. The series confronts prejudice and discrimination by offering searing insights into the lives of diverse Australians who live with judgement and scrutiny. By asking only the hard questions (submitted anonymously online) and allowing interviewees to answer in their own words, the series adds new voices, surprising insights and fresh perspectives to subjects often dismissed.

For series 5, You Can’t Ask That is casting a wide net and putting the following subjects under the microscope: ‘Cheaters’ (infidelity), People on the Autism Spectrum, Nudists, ‘Housos’ (people who live in public housing), Adoptees, Lesbians, People Living with Anxiety, Identical Twins, Families of Missing Persons, People Living with HIV, Accidental Killers and Kids.

To apply to appear on the show or to submit questions for any of the new subjects: go to: www.abc.net.au/youcantaskthat or email ycat@abc.net.au

The multi award-winning You Can’t Ask That is currently short listed for the Television Business International – Content Innovation Awards to be held at MIPCOM in October. Other notable award wins include the Media Diversity Australia Award at the recent Mid-Year Walkley’s, the Best Film and TV Series of the Year at the 2019 LGBTI Awards, winner of both the ‘Media’ and ‘Overall’ Awards at the Queensland Mental Health Awards, ‘Best in Television’ at ‘The Monthly’ Awards and winner of the Rose d’Or Award for the Best Factual & Reality Program.

The appeal of this innovative ABC original format has resulted in 20 seasons across 10 International versions and is a testament to the power and flexibility of the format. International series include: Australia (4 series), France (2 series), Italy (1 series), Spain (2 series), Norway (1 series), Israel (Hebrew 3 series with the latest version for children), Israel (Arabic 1 series), Netherlands (2 series), Canada (French 2 series) and Canada (English 2 series).
