Harley Breen's 'Taboo' Scores A Logie Nomination
Originally part of 'Pilot Week', Breen's series picked up a Logie nomination ahead of new episodes being released.
Each week 'Taboo' sees Breen spend time with a group from marginalised minorities, who share their stories with him and open up about their experiences. Following that trip, Breen writes and performs a stand-up special about that group.
As Breen explains it, 'Taboo' is "a show about laughing with people you shouldn't be laughing at".
Based on a Belgian series by the same name, 'Taboo' was first a part of 10's 'Pilot Week' where Breen went away with a group of people with physical disabilities. When the episode aired audiences were immediately blown away by the concept, the exceptional people it featured and Breen's performance.

Now the series has three more episodes coming soon to 10, focusing on mental illness, racism and terminal illness. But the show has something else to celebrate too: a Logie nomination.
On Sunday, the TV Week Logies announced 'Taboo' was nominated for Most Outstanding Factual or Documentary Program.
The show is nominated alongside ABC's 'Employable Me', 'Ron Iddles: The Good Cop', 'Exposed: The Case of Keli Lane' and 'The Pacific - In the wake of Captain Cook with Sam Neil'.
'Taboo' is set to return to Network 10 very soon, so stay tuned for more of the Logie-nominated series!
