New BBC Drama The Tourist

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


BBC One has commissioned a new drama by writing duo Harry and Jack Williams called The Tourist.

In the red heart of the Australian outback, a British man is 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. Except he has no idea 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.

The six-episode series twists and turns through the dusty outback of Australia, to the frantic noise and lights of Singapore, and to the calm, luxury white-sand beaches of Bali.

Harry and Jack Williams, Writers and Managing Directors of Two Brothers Pictures, said: “The Tourist is a departure from anything we’ve written before. It isn’t an easy show to categorise - so we won’t. We are, however, hugely excited to have Chris Sweeney on board as director, and to be making this for the BBC. We’re thankful for their support of this ambitious project.”

Filming will begin later this year and casting will be announced in due course.
