Filming on ABC TV’s surf drama ‘Barons‘ has wrapped. The 8-part series, set in the 1970s, follows the story of a surf-crazed group of hippy friends who retreat from the real world to search for their ideal patch of surfing paradise. In an ironic twist their desire for ultimate freedom and the perfect wave will take them from the beach to the boardroom, creating billion-dollar empires.
Director Shawn Seet (The Code, Storm Boy) and the cast and crew navigated strict covid protocols to bring the world of ‘Barons’ to life. Emmy award-winning surf director Taylor Steele (Momentum, Momentum Generation) captured all the surf action. You can read more about the production here.
Congratulations to the 16 MCTV members who scored roles on this exciting series, many of them appearing in multiple scenes. Barons will be an ABC TV and ABC iview must-watch television event in 2022.
