Nash Edgerton’s first directing gig for a television series and FX Australia’s first local production, Mr Inbetween, has commenced shooting.
Driven by dark humour and off-beat conversation, the six part series follows charismatic, yet volatile hitman Ray Shoesmith, as he navigates his chilling business while also maintaining friendships, parental responsibilities and a fledgling romance.
The show is being filmed at various locations in and around Sydney and is looking at an early 2018 premiere.
Mr Inbetween is inspired by the critically acclaimed 2005 feature film The Magician, created, written by and starring Scott Ryan. Ryan reprises the role as deadpan hit-man Ray Shoesmith, and also serves as the series writer.
The Mr Inbetween cast, each who characterises Ray’s intense world, includes Brooke Satchwell (Jack Irish, Wonderland, Packed To The Rafters), Justin Rosniak (War Machine, Animal Kingdom, Underbelly), Edmund Lembke-Hogan (The Killing Fields, Anti-Adults), Nicholas Cassim (Wish You Were Here, Around The Block), Damon Herriman (No Activity, Justified, 100 Bloody Acres) among many others.
Jason Burrows of production company Jungle said “As expected, Nash has taken some really strong scripts and lifted them to another level with some beautifully understated performances. It’s a violent world but it’s punctuated with plenty of brilliant crafted comedic moments”.
Nash Edgerton adds “I couldn’t be more thrilled to see Scott Ryan’s wonderfully dangerous character, Ray Shoesmith, come to life once again.”
Mr Inbetween will premiere on FX Australia, exclusively on Foxtel, early 2018.
