Set on the picturesque Great Barrier Reef, the new one hour action adventure family drama will delight viewers and provide a perfect escape from the winter blues.
Gold Logie winner Lisa McCune (Sea Patrol, Blue Heelers) co-produces and leads a stellar cast including Rohan Nichol (Killing Time, Red Dog), Matt Day (Tangle, Paper Giants: The Birth of Cleo), Richard Brancatisano (Underbelly: Razor, Home and Away), Andrew Ryan (Underbelly: Squizzy, Tomorrow When The War Began), Tasneem Roc (Crownies, East West 101, Spirited), German actress Susan Hoecke (Sturm der Liebe, Der Lehrer), Rod Mullinar (Satisfaction, Shortland St), Kristof Piechocki (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) and newcomers Justin Holborow (Neighbours) and Chloe Bayliss (Dance Academy).
Running the remote Hope Island Clinic, Sam Stewart (Lisa McCune) is an accomplished doctor, who with her team, looks after the residents of all the neighbouring islands, as well as the holidaymakers and thrill seekers who visit the area. Not only a GP, Sam is a single mother with a free spirit and a determination – for an unusual hobby: venom.
Network Ten Executive Producer, Drama, Rick Maier said: “What’s not to love? Reef Doctors showcases Lisa McCune and the Great Barrier Reef – both National treasures. A return to broad-appeal family viewing, and perfect escapist entertainment on a cold winter’s night.”
