After the release of the first production still (High-resolution version here) ABC is pleased to announce the 2016 official line-up. Among the premieres, the debut of dramatic adventure series Tomorrow, When The War Began based on the era-defining novels by John Marsden.

The story is adapted for a new generation: “We’ve set in today’s environment and time,” said producer Michael Boughen, “The communications process has changed since John wrote the novels – the internet, phones, the way kids communicate with each other.”

Boughen hopes he’s making something that will appeal to parents as well as kids – what the networks refer to as a “co-viewing” proposition. “There’s 20 years of history there,” he added. “People who were reading them as teenagers can now hopefully revisit them with their own kids.”

Tomorrow, When The War Began: born again for TV

The seaside town of Barwon Heads was rocked by explosions this week (Photo by Ben King). The bridge across the Barwon River – made famous by SeaChange in the late ’90s, condemned in 2006, and rebuilt in 2010 – was hit by a gang of teenagers early on Tuesday.

The first book in John Marsden’s series of seven young adult novels, published in 1993, was turned into a film in 2010. It was a serious effort, a $20 million action adventure directed by Pirates of the Caribbean writer Stuart Beattie, with former Neighbours star Caitlin​ Stasey​ as central character and narrator Ellie, and a talented young cast that included Lincoln Lewis (son of former rugby league great Wally Lewis) and Puberty Blues star Ashleigh Cummings.

The ABC3 and Ambience Entertainment production will be filming on the bridge on October 12 and 13 from 9am to 6pm. The City of Greater Geelong has warned the filming could lead to a “maximum 15 minute delays” to drivers and pedestrians, and will involve the use of props weapons.

The six-part series, which will air next year, covers the first of the highly acclaimed seven-book series and will feature a new cast from the 2010 film adaptation as well as well-known talents Deborah Mailman, James Stewart from Packed to the Rafters and Sibylla Budd from Winners and Losers.

The Ambience Entertainment produced series will be shot at a number of different Victorian locations and is financed by the ABC, Screen Australia, Film Victoria and Ingenious Investments.
