The deal was brokered by Noel Hedges, eOne’s executive VP, acquisitions, international distribution, who said: “Between Two Worlds offers us a glimpse into the rare and privileged world of the super-rich and is a fantastically gripping saga presented by one of the best storytellers in the business,
Norris plays Cate Walford, whose husband Phillip (Quast) is a philandering business tycoon. With her marriage on the ropes, she is caught in a tangled web of lies and manipulation.
Through a shocking twist of fate, her world collides with the seemingly disparate and disconnected, warm and loving world of a widow and her footy star son and musical daughter.
A Place to Call Home’s Wiseman is the widow Sophia Grey, with Jeffery as a football coach, Megan Hajjar as Sophia’s daughter Bella, Alex Cubis as her brother Danny, Tom Dalzell as the Walford’s son Bart and Melanie Jarnson as Bart’s girlfriend.
The 10-part drama was shot in Sydney, directed by Kriv Stenders, Lynn Hegarty, Caroline Bell-Booth, Beck Cole and Michael Hurst. The series producer is Chris Martin-Jones with Lesley Parker as co-producer and Seven’s head of drama Julie McGauran as executive producer.
