Netflix has announced a new, as-yet-untitled Australian romantic comedy that will be headlined by Victoria Justice and Adam Demos.
You might have seen American actress Victoria Justice in the Nickelodeon series Victorious or the MTV series Eye Candy. And you might have watched Aussie actor Adam Demos in legal drama Janet King or the steamy drama Sex/Life. In the not-too-distant future, you can see them together in a new Netflix romcom.
The logline of the currently untitled film is: To land a major client, a hard-driving LA wine-company exec travels to an Australian sheep station, where she ends up working as a ranch hand and sparking with a rugged local.
The film, which will be shot on location in Queensland, Australia, will be directed by Stuart McDonald (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Secret Life of Us), and written by Elizabeth Hackett (Falling Inn Love) and Hilary Galanoy (Love, Guaranteed).
The producers are Robyn Snyder, Deborah Evans, Deborah Glover, and Tracey Vieira, and the executive producers are Tracey Robertson, Nathan Mayfield, Elizabeth Hackett, Hilary Galanoy, and Fernando Szew.
The film’s production and post-production will be supported by the Queensland Government through Screen Queensland’s Production Attraction Strategy, with the project creating approximately 120 jobs for Queenslanders.
Said Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk:
“This new Netflix film is the latest in a string of domestic and international productions continuing to fuel the state’s screen boom which is critical to our economic recovery.
“This project is a strong example of how our Production Attraction Strategy benefits Queensland’s local screen sector via exciting co-production arrangements for local businesses, such as Hoodlum Entertainment, one of the state’s most successful production companies.
“Screen is a major industry in our state and my Government’s recently announced $71 million boost as part of our Economic Recovery Plan, including $53 million to the Production Attraction Strategy, will ensure that the current pipeline of production continues for years to come, for the benefit of our expert local cast and crew.”
