HBO Max announced today that it will co-produce and be the US streaming home for The Tourist, the new limited series starring Jamie Dornan.
From Two Brothers Pictures (Fleabag) comes The Tourist, which HBO Max will co-produce alongside commissioning partners BBC One, Stan, and ZDF. The writers of the limited series are the BAFTA-nominated and Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning team of Harry and Jack Williams (Baptiste, The Missing, Liar).
The Tourist follows a British man (Jamie Dornan, A Private War, The Fall, Wild Mountain Thyme) who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian Outback being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road. An epic cat-and-mouse chase unfolds, and The Man later wakes in hospital, hurt but alive. Except he has no idea who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers and his identity propels him through the vast and unforgiving Outback.
Costars in the six-episode thriller include: Danielle Macdonald (Unbelievable, Dumplin’) as Helen Chambers, a fledgling Probationary Constable; Shalom Brune-Franklin (Line of Duty, Roadkill) as Luci, a waitress who’s swept into The Man’s journey for answers; and Hugo Weaving (The Lord of The Rings, Patrick Melrose) as Agent Lachlan Rogers, a highly-regarded detective inspector in Australia who leads Major Crime for the state police.
Said Jeniffer Kim, Senior Vice President, International Originals, HBO Max:
“Harry and Jack’s talents are as vast as the Australian outback, and this thriller will leave viewers on the edge of their seat piecing together the puzzle. We are delighted to have Jamie, Danielle, Hugo and Shalom join the cast for this compelling addition to our slate of international original series.”
The Tourist is a Two Brothers Pictures production for the BBC, in association with Highview Productions, All3Media International, the South Australian Film Corporation, HBO Max, Stan, and ZDF. The executive producers are Harry and Jack Williams, Christopher Aird (Liar, Clique), and Andrew Benson for Two Brothers Pictures, and Tommy Bulfin (Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders) for the BBC. Lisa Scott (A Sunburnt Christmas, The Hunting) will produce and Chris Sweeney (Liar, Back to Life) will executive produce and direct.
