Airdate: Riptide

When her new Aussie husband vanishes, Alison sets out to investigate his disappearance, in this new 10 drama.

Australian / UK drama co-production Riptide, featuring Jo Joyner, Ciarán Griffiths and Peter O’Brien, will screen on 10 in two week’s time.

Filmed in Mount Eliza and the Dandenong Ranges, the 4 part series traces the life of newlywed single mum Alison (Jo Joyner) who marries the older and wealthier Sean (Peter O’Brien) and moves into a gorgeous home by the ocean, along with her teenage daughter Hannah (Asher Yasbincek). But there’s tension, too. Sean’s adult son, Ethan (Benny Turland), is against the marriage.

Despite the obstacles, the happy couple are determined to navigate a future together, until tragedy strikes. Alison’s life is plunged into despair when her husband vanishes after a morning surf. Did he get caught in a dangerous riptide – or is there more to his disappearance than meets the eye?

The cast features Jo Joyner (Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators, Eastenders, Ackley Bridge, Stay Close) and Ciarán Griffiths (Coronation Street, Shameless, The Bill), Peter O’Brien (Neighbours, Tidelands, GLOW), David Berry (A Place to Call Home, Outlander), Benny Turland (Neighbours), Asher Yasbincek (Heartbreak High, The Wilds) and Ally Fowler (Wentworth, Neighbours, All Saints) plus rising star Yazeed Daher (The Heights, The Hunting, Safe Harbour), and newcomer Benjamin Samaddar.

It screened in the UK last December.

Created, written and executive produced by Jason Herbison (Neighbours, Lie With Me, Always Greener) and directed by Australia Directors’ Guild Award recipient, Scott Major (Lie With Me, Neighbours) with writing from Margaret Wilson and Anthony Ellis (Wentworth, McLeod’s Daughters, Stingers) and produced by Natalie Mandel (Neighbours, Wanted, Packed to the Rafters) with intimacy coordinator Michala Banas (Wentworth, The Newsreader, Deadloch).
