New Aussie comedy IGGY AND ACE arrives today on SBS On Demand


An outrageous but heartfelt comedy exploring friendship, addiction and recovery through a queer lens, Iggy & Ace charts the changing friendship between two alcoholics when one of them decides to get sober.

Iggy & Ace are two young, gay best friends who live, work and play together, inseparable in every way. But when Ace starts to suffer debilitating panic attacks when hungover, he winds up at a gay chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous determined to get sober.

Iggy is horrified, convinced that her friend has been indoctrinated into a religious cult, and views his rejection of their shared lifestyle as a rejection of her. Stung, Iggy does everything she can to disrupt his recovery and keep her best friend close, begging the question: Can Ace’s sobriety and his friendship with Iggy co-exist?

The title roles are played by Sara West as Iggy (Don’t Tell, Bad Girl) and Josh Virgona as Ace, in his first television role. Joining them are Roz Hammond (Mad As Hell, Muriel’s Wedding), Joanna Tu (A Lie Of The Mind, Skeleton), Dalip Sondhi (Tidelands, Pulse), Liam Graham (The Heights, Burning Kiss) and new talent Aiden Hawke.

Iggy & Ace premieres Thursday, 9 September 2021 on SBS On Demand (all six episodes available to stream)
