ONE NIGHT: JODIE WHITTAKER LEADS CAST OF NEW PARAMOUNT+ DRAMA
Filming has commenced in Sydney, Australia on new Australian Paramount+ six-part drama One Night, produced by East Tiger and Motive Pictures.
The series, which is led by Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker, is the story of three women whose bond was destroyed by 'the traumatic events of one night 20 years ago'. Nicole Da Silva and Yael Stone join Whittaker in the cast.
Created and written by Emily Ballou, the cast also includes George Mason (The Power of the Dog), Erroll Shand (Underbelly: Land of the Long Green Cloud), Noni Hazlehurst (A Place To Call Home, Fires), Tina Bursill (Doctor Doctor), Damien Strouthos (The Twelve) and Jillian Nguyen (Barons).
Producers Ian Collie, Rob Gibson and Ally Henville of Easy Tiger said: “We are so excited to be working with Emily Ballou, Simon Maxwell and the team at Motive, as well as our partners at Paramount+, on this brilliantly conceived and executed story. One Night is a gripping, character-driven mystery that explores the boundaries of friendship, and questions our understanding of memory, trauma, and storytelling itself, all set against the majestic beauty of the south coast of New South Wales.”
Simon Maxwell, Executive Producer Motive Pictures said, “One Night showcases Emily’s extraordinary gifts as a writer, interweaving beautifully-observed character writing, compulsive storytelling and insights into its very relevant themes. It’s no wonder that her scripts have attracted such a stellar cast including Jodie Whittaker, Nicole da Silva and Yael Stone. We’re excited to be embarking on this adventure alongside our partners at Easy Tiger, Paramount+, Fifth Season and Screen Australia.”
Grainne Brunsdon, Screen Australia’s Head of Content said: “Easy Tiger have an impressive track record of creating fresh Australian dramas that connect with audiences here and around the world, and we’re pleased to support them on this thrilling series, together with a very strong creative team including talented directors Catherine Millar and Lisa Matthews...
"One Night is sure to engage audiences with its complex intertwining storyline, relatable characters and of course the stunning Wollongong coastline as its backdrop.”
Sophia Mogford, Executive Producer, Drama and Comedy, Paramount ANZ said: “One Night is a fantastic drama, and such a timely, yet timeless story set against the dramatic backdrop of the New South Wales coastline, and brought to life by a great cast of International and local actors. It’s a production we are thrilled to be able to champion...
"This coupled with the opportunity to be teaming up with Easy Tiger, Fifth Season and Screen Australia on this compelling story, makes this a very special project. Local productions are a priority for us, and One Night joins The Last King of The Cross, North Shore and The Appleton Ladies Potato Race as another Paramount+ Original to get excited about.”
