Stan & Nine have picked up a sci-fi indie, Restoration, starring Craig McLachlan, Nadia Townsend and Grant Cartwright.
The one hour drama, funded by a Kickstarter campaign, tells the story of a man who awakes after a routine backup, with his memories restored into a body that is not his own. It was written by director Stuart Willis and Matthew Clayfield.
“We’re thrilled to have closed a deal with one of Australia’s leading free-to-air commercial television networks and with pioneering SVOD service Stan,” says producer Toby Gibson.
“Having secured an audience in Australia, as well as Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu territories, we’re now looking to expand our reach to larger international markets,” explains Gibson.
Producers Midnight Snack are now developing the concept into a long-form series.
It will screen later in 2016.
