Jacki Weaver, Bryan Brown, Phoebe Tonkin, Ryan Corr, Daniel Henshall and Sam Reid head the cast of Bloom, a supernatural love story packed with adventure, mystery and horror.

Commissioned by Stan and produced by Playmaker Media, the six-part drama is now shooting in Victoria, directed by John Curran in his TV debut and Mat King, who is in post-production on Screentime’s Pine Gap for the ABC and Netflix.

Scripted by Glen Dolman, the show is set one year after a devastating flood kills five locals in a country town, where a mysterious new plant appears with the power to restore their youth. It’s a miracle which some people will kill to keep secret.

After one third of the residents leave town, the remaining several hundred are trapped in a kind of purgatory, searching for answers and trying to find blame.

Weaver plays Gwen Reid, formerly a successful actress who was forced to retire as she suffers from early-onset Alzheimer’s. Brown is her husband Ray, a high school teacher and former astronomer who is Gwen’s carer.

In her first Australian role since Safe Harbour, Phoebe Tonkin is a younger version of Gwen. Corr is Sam, a character with a dark past, with Henshall as Senior Constable Griffiths.

While Phoebe has not released the title of the project, in June it was announced that Stan would be producing two new drama series – the Gleaming and Bloom – so it is possible the project is one of productions.

Very grateful and excited to be back home shooting again 🌾🌼 🧡

Critically praised Australian series Safe Harbour is set to make its U.S. debut on Hulu. As part of a deal with NBCUniversal Television and New Media Distribution, the four-part event drama will debut August 24 on Hulu.

Safe Harbour tells the story of five Australians on a yachting holiday from Darwin to Indonesia, whose idyllic vacation takes a disastrous turn when they come across a broken-down fishing boat, full of desperate asylum seekers. The Australians decide to help, towing the refugees, but when they wake the next morning the fishing boat is gone. Five years later they meet some of the refugees again and learn the truth. Someone cut the rope between the two boats and, as a result, seven people died when the fishing boat sank. The revelation drives a wedge of mistrust between the Australians, as they grapple with protecting themselves and doing the right thing. The refugees struggle with their desire for justice and, possibly, revenge. As each group struggles to find the truth and old secrets come to light, one question hangs over it all – who cut the rope?

The ensemble cast includes Phoebe Tonkin (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals), Joel Jackson (Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door, Deadline Gallipoli), Ewen Leslie (Rake, Janet King), Leeanna Walsman (Seven Types of Ambiguity, Cleverman), Jacqueline McKenzie (The 4400, The Water Diviner), Hazem Shammas (Underbelly), Nicole Chamoun (Kick) and Robert Rabiah (Tomorrow When the War Began).

Safe Harbour is produced by NBCUniversal International Studios’ Matchbox Pictures with major production funding from Screen Australia, in association with Screen Queensland. Debbie Lee (The Heights, Mustangs FC), Sue Masters (The Family Law, Deep Water) and Belinda Chayko (Barracuda, Secret City) are Executive Producers. Chayco also serves as writer, alongside Matt Cameron (Sunshine, Secret City) and Phil Enchelmaier (Jar Dwellers). Glendyn Ivin (Seven Types of Ambiguity, Hunters) is director. NBCUniversal is handling international sales.

When Damien attempts a rapprochement with Ismail and his brother, Bilal, sees red.

Secrets start to come to the surface and Ismail turns his suspicions closer to home.
