/me puts on my  "I survived the Australian TV Industry" shirt.

Unless you can show that either a) There is a market for the show, or b)
You are willing to pay for the timeslot (and you won't get anything
before midnight), the commercials won't touch it.

The ABC might, but it is vulnerable to "Bias" claims and as such could
see any show watered down to include "the other side" of the story.

SBS would be your best bet
