To catch a killer, four everyday people go beyond the call of jury duty in the 9Network’s gripping new drama series After The Verdict.
Michelle Lim Davidson (The Newsreader) and Tess Haubrich (Wolf Creek) join the previously announced Sullivan Stapleton (Blindspot, Animal Kingdom), Magda Szubanski (Kath & Kim, Babe) and Lincoln Younes (Grand Hotel, Doctor Doctor), with Virginia Gay (Judy and Punch), Emma Diaz (Diary of an Uber Driver), Richard Brancatisano (Harrow), Nicholas Brown (Wakefield), Hazem Shammas (Safe Harbour) and Vivienne Awosoga (Wentworth) also appearing in the series.
After The Verdict tells a story of four very different Australians who have just finished jury duty on a high-profile murder trial. As they return to normal life, they begin to question their verdict and take matters into their own hands, investigating the murder themselves as they juggle the pressures and impacts on their personal lives.
Screen Australia’s Head of Content Sally Caplan said,
“Creators Ellie Beaumont and Drew Proffitt have a proven track record of highly entertaining dramas and Screen Australia is pleased to support them, together with a talented creative team, on the distinctive new series After The Verdict. With an engaging storyline that showcases contemporary Australia, I’m confident it will appeal to audiences here and around the world.”
