Stars miss Lost Flowers of Alice Hart premiere

It was creatives and execs on the red carpet for new local drama last night in Sydney.

It stars Sigourney Weaver, Asher Keddie, Leah Purcell, Frankie Adams and Alycia Debnam-Carey, but new Australian drama The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart was without its big name stars at a preview screening in Sydney last night.

While Sigourney Weaver is doubtless barred from attending as part of the current US actor’s strike, Asher Keddie was reportedly unwell and had to cancel.

Hopefully the strike won’t mean this is a sign of things to come in Australia.

Instead it was the creatives and Prime Video execs who attended, including author Holly Ringland, director Glendyn Ivin, writer and showrunner Sarah Lambert, who both serve as executive producers, with Made Up Stories Executive Producers Jodi Matterson and Bruna Papandrea.

Hushidar Kharas, head of Prime Video ANZ, Tyler Bern, head of content, Prime Video ANZ and Canada and Sarah Christie, senior scripted development executive, were also in attendance.

Based on Holly Ringland’s best-selling novel, the seven-part series tells the story of Alice Hart. When Alice, aged 9, tragically loses her parents in a mysterious fire, she is taken to live with her grandmother June at Thornfield flower farm, where she learns that there are secrets within secrets about her and her family’s past.

The series, which is drawing strong early reviews, premieres with three episodes on Friday with new episodes rolling out weekly.
