Synopsis

Based on a true story, BO is an eight-by-one hour drama series that traces the epic physical and metaphysical journey of Bo Seeto, formerly Bonita, who's tumultuous beginnings set him on a high-stakes path of self-discovery.

The series will be broken into four time periods, with each epoch representing a stage in Bo's external and internal transition, while weaving together the incredible narratives of his remarkable life.

Bo - bodybuilder, underworld debt collector, escort, Kings Cross bouncer, father and personal trainer, has lived this life. He is strong and masculine, some may even say menacing to describe his exterior. The type of guy you may not want to come up against. Bo has three kids, a lovely wife and lives in a sprawling residence in Sydney's beachside suburb. An ideal family, a seemingly ideal existence. But this has only come about in the last few years.

From his early years enduring a whirlwind of physical and sexual abuse, adolescent sexual exploration, and domestic violence, Bo dives into a remarkable transformation. An effort to finally regain ownership of his physical form.

At its heart, BO is a human story about love, courage, the pursuit of happiness and living life as yourself, unashamedly.
