Series concept and info
The Embassy is a factual and observational documentary television series airing on the Nine Network in Australia since October 2014. The program was created by Laurie Critchley and Craig Graham, narrated by Les Hill and produced by Southern Pictures. The first series followed behind-the-door workings of the Australian Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand, and for the second series embassies in Thailand, as well as in Vietnam and Laos opened their doors and gave unprecedented access to the filming crews.
Thailand is one of the most popular destinations for Australians, thus the Australian embassy in Bangkok is, naturally, one of the busiest. The stories behind the cases that are dealt with range from comical to truly tragic, and require a tactful and professional approach. Trudy McGowan, First Secretary and Consul of the Australian Embassy`s in Bangkok, however, admits that it`s often hard to keep a straight face when hearing some of the obviously embarrassing half-truths that people sometimes come up with.
Critical reception, ratings and renewal prospects
The series was praised by the critics as providing an insightful glimpse both into Aussies` antics abroad and, on the other side, the patience and understanding that goes into rescuing them from the consequences of these antics on the part of embassy staff. There are many diverse issues portrayed in The Embassy – from Australian babies born to Thai surrogate mothers to drunk fights involving Australian citizens, and all of them require commitment and an open mind.
The series` ratings have slid from an approximately 500,000 at the premiere to 372,000 by the third episode. How will the network take to these numbers is not clear, so we will monitor the ratings and announcements and inform you as soon as relevant information becomes available.
