Mix Tape Begins Production

BINGE today announced production has commenced in Sydney on Irish-Australian co-production Mix Tape, a new series starring acclaimed Australian actress Teresa Palmer (The Clearing, The Fall Guy) and British actor Jim Sturgess (Across The UniverseCloud Atlas) to be filmed across Sydney and Ireland.

International star and Australian actor Ben Lawson (Bombshell, Designated Survivor) returns to Australia for his first major role in an Australian television drama in many years. He is joined for the Australian portion of the shoot by fellow Australian actors Julia Savage (The Clearing, Blaze), Jacqueline McKenzie (Force of Nature: The Dry 2, Savage River)and Chika Ikogwe (Heartbreak High, Land of the Bad), with more cast to be announced as the production moves to Ireland.

Adapted from the popular and critically acclaimed novel by Jane Sanderson, Mix Tape will take viewers back in time to that intoxicating feeling of first love. The series is a classic all-encompassing romance set to a banging nostalgic soundtrack.

Moving between their teenage romance in Sheffield, England in 1989 and the modern-day reality of their adult relationships, Daniel (Jim Sturgess) and Alison (Teresa Palmer), now living on opposite sides of the world, reconnect through a song from their shared past and explore their burning curiosity to understand if this is the love, and life, they were meant to have.

Alison Hurbert-Burns, Commissioner and Executive Producer said: “Mix Tape is a compelling series, rich in emotion that will transport you back in time through the power of music. Aquarius Films and Subotica have secured outstanding cast led by Teresa and Jim, who along with some of the finest creatives will deliver a story we can’t wait for our audiences to see.”

Aquarius Films’ Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford, and Subotica’s Aoife O’Sullivan and Tristan Orpen Lynch, said: “From the moment we read Jane Sanderson’s novel we all knew that we just had to adapt this gorgeous grown-up love story for the screen. Mix Tape asks the age-old question ‘What if you had a second chance with your first love?’ and walks us back down memory lane to revisit the innocence of teenage passions – against a banging soundtrack! We’re thrilled to be partnering with Binge/Foxtel to bring this project to audiences and couldn’t be more excited about the fantastic cast we’ve assembled.”
