Filming is underway in Sydney on Seven’s next major drama series Between Two Worlds by writer Bevan Lee (A Place to Call Home, Packed to the Rafters, Winners & Losers).
The high concept thriller will be led by UK actor, Hermione Norris (Cold Feet, Spooks, Luther).
Also featuring are Philip Quast (Picnic at Hanging Rock, Hacksaw Ridge), Sara Wiseman (A Place to Call Home), Aaron Jeffery (Wentworth, Underbelly Files: Chopper) and newcomers Tom Dalzell, Melanie Jarnson and Megan Hajjar.
Norris plays Cate Walford, whose relationship with vicious, business tycoon husband, Phillip, is on the ropes and sees a tempestuous home life trapped in a tangled web of lies and manipulation. Through a shocking twist of fate, this dark and murky world collides with the seemingly disparate and disconnected, warm and loving world of a widow and her footy star son and musical daughter. Destructive secrets are soon unearthed proving nothing is quite as it first might appear.
Hermione Norris said: “I am always script-led in decision making and I found Bevan’s script full of well-drawn characters and a page turning narrative – it was a really entertaining read, and fun for me to consider something a little bit different. I think audiences will love the colour and vibrancy of this thrilling and complex narrative – many secrets to be revealed and rivalries to be exposed.”
Seven’s Director of Content Distribution and Rights Therese Hegarty said “We are thrilled that the quality of Bevan Lee’s work has enabled us to attract a world class cast and crew to this project. Seven Studios has a history of creating programs that engage global audiences and we will continue to build out a local and global strategy.”
It is due to screen later this year.
