HBO Max has released first-look pictures of Jamie Dornan in the new thriller series The Tourist.
The Tourist stars BAFTA®-nominated Jamie Dornan (A Private War, The Fall, Wild Mountain Thyme) as “The Man” who is desperately searching for his identity. This British man 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 somehow alive… and with no idea about who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback.
Full of shocking, surprising, funny and brutal turns, The Tourist is set in a world populated by quirky, enigmatic characters, and off-beat comedy punctuates high-stakes action. At its heart, though, is a story of self-discovery with a ticking time bomb underneath: As The Man starts to uncover the mystery of who he was, he is also forced to ask who he is now — and fast. Will he unlock the secrets of his identify before those who are trying to kill him catch up with him?
This character-driven thriller from Emmy®-winning production company Two Brothers Pictures (Baptiste, The Missing, Fleabag) is created and written by acclaimed writers Harry and Jack Williams for HBO Max, BBC, Stan, and ZDF.
Costars in the six-part series include Danielle Macdonald (Unbelievable, Dumplin’, Patti Cakes), Shalom Brune-Franklin (Line of Duty, Roadkill), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (Trapped, The Missing), and Alex Dimitriades (The End, The Cry). Damon Herriman (Mindhunter, Justified) has also joined the series playing Lachlan Rogers, replacing Hugo Weaving who departed the production due to scheduling issues.
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 6×60 drama has been written by BAFTA-nominated and Emmy-winning producers and screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams (Baptiste, The Missing, Liar), who, alongside Christopher Aird (Baptiste, Liar, Clique) and Andrew Benson, serve as executive producers for Two Brothers Pictures, with Tommy Bulfin (Normal People, Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders) executive producing for the BBC. Lisa Scott (A Sunburnt Christmas, The Hunting) is the producer, and Chris Sweeney (Liar, Back to Life) is an executive producer and the director.
