Being a young Aussie bloke can be a little like sitting in the waiting room of life. Even with the awkwardness and rebellion of adolescence now but a fading memory, there’s a sense that fully-fledged adulthood can be put off for another day. While the relatively carefree days of university or backpacking the globe have made way for nine-to-five jobs and responsibilities, it’s still a time of grappling with the big questions about what the future holds – and with whom you are going to spend it.

Last Man Standing is a bold, refreshingly candid drama that captures the essence of these restless years through the perspective of three young Aussie blokes. It follows the odyssey of Adam, Cameron and Bruno – their quest to get inside the head of the modern woman, find out where they went wrong in previous relationships and what they’re going to do right next time. Because when it comes time to pick teams, no-one wants to be the last man standing.
