Stan in collaboration with global content leader Lionsgate, has just unveiled the much-anticipated trailer for the Stan Original Series Prosper.

This release followed a star-studded blue carpet event in Sydney, which saw the attendance of the show’s illustrious cast.

Prosper marks a significant addition to Stan’s portfolio, presenting a cutting-edge drama set within the influential echelons of the evangelical megachurch U Star. The series, under the stewardship of the affluent Quinn family, delves into the complex dynamics of faith and ambition.
