Two Channel Seven stars, Zoe Ventoura and Daniel MacPherson, have signed on to new drama series, Wild Boys.
As first revealed by TV Tonight, the series is an adventurous bushranger drama with horses, gold, bushrangers, power and corruption.
Ventoura quit Packed to the Rafters to pursue a Hollywood career.
“I went to LA late last year and took meetings and did some great auditions. The plan was to move, but then this came up, I read the script and just fell in love with it,” she says.
MacPherson has also spent time in the US pursuing Hollywood opportunities.
“It was a really big decision to put off LA again as I’ve spent the last two or three years working towards heading there,” he says.
Seven’s Tim Worner recently told TV Tonight the series would have international appeal.
“We’re kind of adopting a philosophy of ‘let’s put on what’s not on.’ We looked across the landscape and thought ‘Gee I can’t see any bushranger dramas,’” he said.
The series is due to begin shooting in late March in northern Sydney and expected to debut later this year.
