Production on upcoming miniseries Nine Perfect Strangers, featuring Nicole Kidman, Luke Evans, Melissa McCarthy, Asher Keddie and Samara Weaving will begin in Byron Bay on August 10 and continue for 19 weeks.
The Hulu series being produced by Kidman’s Blossom Films, Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories and Endeavor Content is based on Liane Moriarty’s bestseller of the same name.
The Sunday Telegraph reports the production has permission from state and federal governments to bring in international and interstate cast and crew under strict COVID-19 guidelines.
Police will supervise an isolated production hub at Kidman’s Southern Highlands property to allow pre-production to proceed as the team quarantines.
Keith Urban and children Sunday and Faith, as well as cast and crew members, will serve a 14-day quarantine under strict government guidelines in a fully-contained facility, with Kidman and her co-producers to pay all medical and security costs.
The production will also house cast and crew in a hotel during filming under strict health guidelines.
