About

FORMER BIG BROTHER CONTESTANTS, TIM DORMER AND BEN ZABEL, TAKE THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME

When Tim won Australia’s Big Brother, he promised to take his friend Ben to Graceland, the home of his childhood idol Elvis Presley. What began as a holiday turned into a rescue mission – to help Ben find a new lease on life after his ongoing struggle with depression came to a head with an attempted suicide. Tim and Ben’s journey to Memphis is a search for happiness, exploring everything from celebrity to civil rights, religion, music history and most importantly friendship.

The Graceland Happiness Project explores the complexity of depression and what it takes to be the friend of someone who suffers from mental illness. Tim and Ben’s authentic chemistry provides genuinely heart-warming moments – equal amounts of tears and laughs.
