Nothing is worth more than blood in Last King of the Cross, a Paramount+ Australian original series

Streaming exclusively on Australia’s premier streaming service from Friday, 17 February, comes Paramount+ Australian original series Last King Of The Cross, an operatic story of two brothers, John (Lincoln Younes) and Sam Ibrahim (Claude Jabbour) who organise the street but lose each other in their ascent to power.

Inspired by John Ibrahim’s best-selling autobiography of the same name, the 10 part elevated serialised drama tracks John’s rise from a poverty-stricken immigrant with no education, no money, and no prospects, to Australia’s most infamous nightclub mogul in Sydney’s Kings Cross – a mini-Atlantic City, barely half a mile long with every form of criminality on offer.

To succeed in the ruthless world of Kings Cross, John must make personal sacrifices and quash his enemies as he climbs to the top. But this all comes at a cost. For what profits a man who gains a kingdom, but loses his soul?

Adding to the local star-power, two celebrated Australian award-winning musicians, in singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke and Northlane frontman Marcus Bridge, have collaborated to dramatically re-reimagine Miller-Heidke’s multi-platinum hit The Last Day On Earth for the series. The Last Day On Earth (feat. Marcus Bridge) will be released via EMI Music Australia on January 19. Fans can use the sound on TikTok from today.
