Production has commenced in the Northern Territory on Top End Bub for Prime Video.

The 8-part series follow up to the 2019 hit movie, Top End Wedding, is currently filming in Darwin, before moving to Adelaide.

Top End Bub sees Miranda Tapsell (Love Child, The Sapphires, The Artful Dodger) and Gwilym Lee (Bohemian Rhapsody, The Great) return to lead the cast as Lauren and Ned.

Also reprising their roles are Ursula Yovich and Huw Higginson as Daffy and Trevor, Lauren’s parents; Shari Sebbens as Ronelle, Elaine Crombie as Dana and Tracy Mann as Annie, Ned’s mum. Joining the cast is Rob Collins, Brooke Satchwell, Guy Simon, Clarence Ryan and making her acting debut as Taya aka ‘Bub’ is Gladys-May Kelly.

Miranda Tapsell said, “Being on set with this wonderful team and cast is inspiring. We’ve all been working on this for so long, so ‘finally’ being in production is like a fire in the belly, we are here, we are doing it and I just couldn’t be prouder!”

Top End Bub revisits Lauren, a dynamic Indigenous lawyer ticking off life goals in Adelaide. She’s married to Ned, a handsome husband who makes fresh croissants. What else could a person need? After Lauren’s eight-year-old niece is orphaned, the show follows the couple reluctantly abandoning their big-city goals and moving to the Top End (where the outback meets the tropics) to raise the child. While Lauren and Ned juggle the responsibility of becoming unexpected parents and try to keep their marriage together, Lauren must come to terms with her responsibilities within her culture as she transforms from an individualist to the linchpin of her family.

Top End Bub is created, written and executive produced by Miranda Tapsell and Joshua Tyler and produced by Goalpost Pictures. Goalpost Pictures’ Rosemary Blight is Executive Producer, and the series is directed by Christian Van Vuuren and Shari Sebbens. Top End Bub is supported by Screen Australia, Screen Territory, and South Australian Film Corporation.
