Upper Middle Bogan is an Australian television show that follows the life of Bess Denyar, a doctor who discovers that she was switched at birth and is actually part of an eccentric family of drag racers and outcasts. The show originally aired on ABC1 from 2013-2016 and is now available for streaming on Acorn TV.

Annie Maynard stars as Bess Denyar, who was raised in a wealthy, upper-middle-class family with her parents Margaret and Wayne (Robyn Malcolm and Glenn Robbins) and her siblings Amber and Danny (Michala Banas and Harrison Feldman). Bess is married to her supportive and successful husband, Danny (Patrick Brammall), and they have two teenage children, Spencer and Edwina (Dougie Baldwin and Madeleine Jevic). Bess's life is suddenly turned upside down when she discovers an old document that shows she was swapped with another baby at birth.

After a series of DNA tests, Bess discovers that her biological parents are Wayne and Julie Wheeler (Robyn Nevin and Robyn Malcolm), a working-class couple who live in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. The Wheelers are a loud, fun-loving group who own a drag car business and compete in races on the weekends. Bess struggles to adjust to her new reality, as she must balance her life as a doctor in a prestigious private hospital with her newfound family, who are considered to be lower class.

The show explores the clash between Bess's two families as she struggles to find a way to fit into both worlds. Bess is caught between her past life with her wealthy family and her new life with the Wheelers, who are seen as "bogans" or lower-class Australians. She must navigate through the complexities of her relationships with her parents, siblings, and in-laws, while also dealing with her own identity crisis.
