The first day of shooting for Tomorrow, When The War Began – The Series is now achieved. The cast is excited to bring all characters to life and thanks to the series’ official Facebook page we are lucky enough to get a short on-set video of the eight actors in their character’s outfits for the first time!
Meanwhile, ABC Commercial has already announced it has secured all streaming, digital download and DVD distribution rights in Australia and New Zealand to the series, which is expected to premiere on ABC3 in early 2016.
The announcement follows the recent cast reveal, with acclaimed Australian actors Sibylla Budd (The Secret Life of Us), Deborah Mailman (Redfern Now), James Stewart (Packed to the Rafters) and Alison Bell (Offspring) all confirmed to star alongside a stellar line up of young, fresh-faced Australian talent.
“We are thrilled to have secured the rights to one of the most hotly anticipated television series of 2016,” said Jessica Ellis, head of ABC video entertainment & distribution. “The move strongly reaffirms ABC Commercial’s position as a leading entertainment provider and we expect this will be an Australian drama all families will enjoy together.”
“[Tomorrow] is an ambitious series that will set a new benchmark for Australian family drama—this does take significant investment, and we have amazing support from Screen Australia and Film Victoria,” said Deirdre Brennan, head of children’s television at ABC TV. “As a public broadcaster, miniseries definitely work as part of an event strategy.”
Ambience Entertainment producer Michael Boughen said, “This is an exceptional cast of talented performers completely engaged with the material who will bring a new, dynamic energy to the story.”
Director Brendan Maher adds,“Given the right circumstances everyone can be a hero. Our characters are faced with heart thumping jeopardy and spirit breaking dilemmas. How will they react? John Marsden has given us a truthful, enriching template on how to be the best we can.”
