Irreverent centers on a criminal from Chicago who bungles a heist and is forced to hide out in a small Australian reef town in Far North Queensland, posing as the new church reverend.

A project of Matchbox Pictures (Wanted, Clickbait), a co-production between Peacock and Netflix Australia, the ten-episode drama will be set and filmed in Australia.

Created by Paddy Macrae (Wanted), the series will be written by Macrae, Andrew Knight (Rake), Andrew Anastasios (Wentworth), and Angela McDonald (The Heart Guy). It will be executive produced by Debbie Lee (Glitch) and Andrew Knight (Rake), and produced by Tom Hoffie (Clickbait) and Paddy Macrae.

Filming in Australia has been made possible with the support of the federal government’s Location Incentive program. Screen Queensland is supporting Irreverent through the Queensland government’s Production Attraction Strategy.
