It includes Essie Davis (The Silence, The Girl With The Pearl Earring, After The Deluge, The Matrix) as Dolly Pickles with Stephen Curry (30 Seconds, The King) as her husband Sam Pickles, and Emma Booth (Underbelly 3, Clubland) as their daughter Rose.
They will be joined by Kerry Fox (Bright Star, Shallow Grave, An Angel At My Table) as Oriel Lamb, Geoff Morell (Bastard Boys, Curtin, Grass Roots, Changi) as her husband Lester Lamb, with Todd Lasance (Home & Away, Fools Gold) as Quick and recent NIDA graduate Hugo Johnstone-Burt as Fish.
The three month shoot will commence in Western Australia on February 8, with Matt Saville (Tangle, The King, The Surgeon, Noise) directing.
The series, being adapted by Winton and Ellen Fontanta, is in production for the Showcase channel.
