Acorn TV announced today the North American premiere date for Under the Vines, the streaming service’s latest Original series from Down Under.
Under the Vines, a humorous romantic drama series that follows two city slickers who inherit a failing vineyard in rural New Zealand, stars Rebecca Gibney (Wanted, Packed to the Rafters, Halifax: Retribution) and Charles Edwards (The Crown, The Terror, Downton Abbey) in the lead roles.
The six-part Acorn TV Original series will premiere in the US and Canada with its first two episodes on Monday, December 6, exclusively on Acorn TV. Subsequent episodes will debut singly on Mondays through January 3, 2022.
In the series, Sydney socialite Daisy Munroe (Gibney) heads to Peak View, New Zealand, for a vacation at her recently deceased stepfather’s winery, which she intends to sell. Little does she know that the vineyard has a co-owner — grumpy UK-born lawyer Louis Oakley (Edwards) — who also travels to this Kiwi wine region to escape a spiraling series of unfortunate events in his life. Despite neither having done a hard day’s work in their lives and both despising each other, the two must somehow make Oakley Winery successful so they can sell up, split up, and get out.
The ensemble cast includes Dean O’Gorman (One Lane Bridge), Sara Wiseman (A Place to Call Home), John Bach (Janet King), Matt Whelan (The Sounds), Simon Mead (Nothing Trivial), Sarah Peirse (Offspring), Cohen Holloway (Top of the Lake), Carrie Green (Mystic), Catherine Wilkin (Stateless), Robbie Magasiva (Wentworth), and newcomer Trae Te Wiki.
Under the Vines is produced by Carmen J Leonard and executive produced by Gibney and Richard Fletcher for Libertine Pictures, and Brendan Dahill for EQ Media Group. Acorn Media Enterprises co-produces. Tim Balme (The Sounds, The Brokenwood Mysteries) is the writer for the first episode, with other episodes written by Nick Ward (Wellington Paranormal), J C Stewart-Te Whiu (Waru), Kathryn Burnett (The Sounds), Harry McNaughton (The Pact), and series creator/director Erin White (The Heart Guy).
