Kiwi journalist and filmmaker David Farrier – who graduated from AUT with a Bachelor of Communication Studies in 2006 – has completed work on Dark Tourist, a Netflix series set to debut later this month.

The series is the first New Zealand-produced series commissioned by Netflix, and will see Farrier travel to "unusual – and often macabre" tourism spots around the globe. Details on the series are scarce, and will be available to Netflix subscribers from 20 June.

David's debut documentary film Tickled, a bizarre odyssey into "competitive tickling", caused waves and attracted lawsuits a few years ago.
