One of the busiest producers in the biz, John Edwards, will co-produce a contemporary telemovie for Channel TEN, Offspring.
Asher Keddie (Hawke, Rush, Love My Way, Underbelly) will star in a story of the impossible loves of 30-something obstetrician Nina Proudman, and her fabulously messy family, as they navigate the chaos of modern life. Kat Stewart (Tangle, Underbelly, 30 Seconds) will star as her wild sister Billie. Don Hany (Underbelly, East West 101, White Collar Blue) is also confirmed for the project.
Filming of the Southern Star project begins next Monday in Melbourne.
Edwards will co-produce with his Tangle co-producer, Imogen Banks (Dangerous), and the tale will be directed by Kate Dennis (Rush, Love My Way, The Secret Life of Us) from a screenplay by Debra Oswald (The Secret Life of Us, Police Rescue and theatre production Dags).
“It’s a joyous story with a dream team cast. Can’t wait to get started” said Edwards.
Imogen Banks added, “We are thrilled to be making this buoyant, romantic comedy set on the streets of Fitzroy.”
Rick Maier, TEN’s Executive Producer, Drama and Production said, “Brilliant cast, equally brilliant script. It should be a fun shoot.”
