#BBCOne has announced a new mystery thriller from award-winning writing duo, Jack and Harry Williams.
#TheTourist is set in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback where 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.
Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, say: “The Tourist has one of the boldest and most brain-twistingly brilliant conceits which thriller fans will have experienced in a long time. We are delighted to be home to this inspired and utterly original idea and can’t wait to see how Jack, Harry and the exciting team at Two Brothers will bring it to life.”
The ambitious project will be produced by Two Brothers Pictures, in association with Stan - the Australian co-commissioning partner; Highview Productions; all3media International and the South Australian Film Corporation. Chris Sweeney is on board to direct.
