Cyberhate with Tara Moss will premiere as a 6-part series tonight on iView and as a 1-hour special on ABC2 at 9:30pm tomorrow, Wednesday 15 March.
This is the first time Tara has taken on the role of Co-Executive Producer, Co-Writer, and Presenter on a project and is actively working to expand her slate in factual television. Cyberhate was developed alongside Australian production company The Full Box.
Cyberhate explores how the internet has given the world a voice, and attempts to understand why some use their voice to shame, bully and brutalise. In this revealing program, author, journalist, TV presenter and human rights advocate, Tara Moss, will guide viewers to the darkest corners of the web to uncover the world of cyber violence and share her own story of dealing with online threats, anger, trolls and acclaim from Q&A. Through interviews, discussion and cutting edge science, this series will investigate why fury is reshaping the online world. At the same time, Tara will guide us through the complexities of online ethics and digital democracy.
Fantastic to see the program get a 5 star review in The Age.
