Documentary Investigates 88 Suspicious Deaths of Gay Men in Sydney

Please tell me this will air in the U.S.

Towleroad reports that a new Australian multimedia project is aiming to investigate whether as many as 88 deaths in Sydney from the 1970s onward, including 30 unsolved cases, were gay hate crimes. Deep Water will include a documentary, a podcast, an online interactive hub and a four-part fictional drama.

Among the 30 unsolved murders, the project examines the case of U.S.-born Scott Johnson, right, who was found dead in 1998 near a well-known cruising area in Sydney. Johnson’s death was ruled a suicide the following year. However, in 2012 the New South Wales deputy state coroner overturned the suicide finding. She could not determine how Johnson died.
