SLR Productions annouces lead role and crew on new Sam Fox series
New South Wales actor Remy Brand has been cast as the lead in the upcoming SLR Productions series Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures.
The 22-year-old has appeared in a number of television commercials before as well as holding a guest role in Seven Network’s iconic series Home and Away. However, the part of Sam Fox is his first major acting role.
Executive Producer and CEO of SLR Productions, Suzanne Ryan, says, “I am thrilled to have Remy Brand cast as Sam Fox, he absolutely captures the complete character of Sam Fox. His rugged good-looks, boyish charm and action-adventure spirit means he will strongly translate the character from Justin D’Ath’s books into an on-screen hero. We also have the cream of Australia’s producing talent on board for Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures – each bringing their own individual experience and knowledge to collaborate on a project that will be a smash hit for 8-12 years around the world”.
The 26 x 24 minute children’s series is based on the popular action adventure books by Justin D’Ath, and will follow teenage “danger magnet” Sam Fox on his adventures through the wild – from deep jungles to volatile volcanoes to the open ocean.
Sam Fox: Extreme Adventures will be produced by Michael Bourchier and directed by Evan Clarry, Arnie Custo, Julie Money, Nicholas Bufalo and Karl Zwicky. Ally Henville has joined the team as Line Producer and Aaron Gully will be the Director of Photography. The series Script Producer is Justine Gillmer with Jane Schneider as Script Editor and Terence McCarthy as Script Coordinator.
The series will be filmed at the South Australian Film Corporation’s brand new Adelaide Studios as well as on location in South Australia.
