Nine Network in Australia has unveiled more details about its upcoming Subtext Pictures-produced drama, which explores the lives of four jury members.
After The Verdict has been created, written and executive produced by Subtext Pictures’ Ellie Beaumont and Drew Proffitt (House Husbands, Dead Lucky) and tracks jury members who begin to question their verdict on a high-profile murder case.
The six-part series will premiere on Nine in Oz, with eOne handling international sales and Michelle Lim Davidson (The Newsreader) and Tess Haubrich (Wolf Creek) joining the previously announced Sullivan Stapleton (Blindspot) and Magda Szubanski (Kath & Kim).
Beaumont said: “We look forward to collaborating with our super talented cast and creative team to tell the tale of four rogue jurors who go to entertaining extremes to uncover the truth.”
Andy Ryan, NIne Network’s head of drama, described the show as “cracking yarn that’s guaranteed to entertain and intrigue audiences of all ages.”
The show, which also has the support of funding body Screen Australia and regional organisation Screen NSW, marks the first time eOne has partnered on a Subtext show.
