Channel Nine are about to start production on a powerful new series called Amazing Grace.
Amazing Grace is centred on midwife Grace (Kate Jenkinson) and her passionate colleagues at an unconventional birth centre attached to a major city hospital. A fierce advocate for her pregnant mothers-to- be, Grace’s dubious work/life balance is about to get even more chaotic when a new arrival at the birth centre changes her life forever.
International distribution rights have already been sold to Sony Pictures so it looks like this one will be well funded and have plenty of opportunities for background and supporting roles.
