The 22-part drama series from FremantleMedia Australia concentrates on four very different couples “navigating the humourous and sometimes painful minefield of love, friendship and life in the 21st century.”
Dorman (Wild Boys, The Secret Life Of Us, Blood Brothers) plays clever and charming bachelor Tom Wilcox while Satchwell (Packed To The Rafters, Tripping Over, White Collar Blue) appears as uptight, driven and politically correct Grace Barnes.
Other cast members include Jessica Tovey (Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo, Mr & Mrs Murder) as Dani Varvaris, Tim Ross (Neighbours, Rush) as Steve Beaumont, Emma Lung (The Straits, Entourage) as Colette Riger, Ben Mingay (Packed To The Rafters) as Rob Duffy, and newcomers Glenn McMillan as Carlos Dos Santos and Anna Bamford as Miranda Beaumont.
Network Ten Executive Producer, Drama, Rick Maier, said: “Wonderland is an escapist treat with a great production team and with a perfectly-balanced ensemble cast. As the song says: the world really is wonderful and we can’t wait to showcase this new series on TEN.”
Co-creator Jo Porter, added: “Wonderland takes us inside the world of a group of couples and friends who live life in all its complexity.
“This is a warm, light-hearted and engaging drama and I am proud of the exciting ensemble of Australia’s brightest and freshest actors we have playing these roles. I can’t wait for our audience to meet and fall in love with them too.”
Set in a beach-side apartment building and filmed in various locations in and around Sydney, the series is co-created by Sarah Walker and produced by Andy Walker.
It is due to air later this year on TEN.
