Check out this trailer for the new psychological mystery series, Wakefield. Set in the Blue Mountains, the series explores themes of mental illness, family and race with intelligence, humour and heart. All 8 episodes will be available to stream on iView from April 2.
The show features many familiar faces including Mandy McElhinney (Bad Mothers, Squinters) and Geraldine Hakewill (Wanted, Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries), Ryan Corr (Love Child, Packed to the Rafters) and Kym Gyngell (Underbelly, The Straits). Over 20 MCTV members also feature and in background and extras roles.
Executive Producer for Jungle Entertainment (who made the show in partnership with BBC Studios), Chloe Rickard says, “Wakefield is undeniably authentic, poetic and powerful. Despite one in five Australians living with mental illness in their lifetime, social stigma on the issue of mental health still prevails – this series gets right to the heart of this controversial issue, whilst being hugely entertaining.”
