Wakefield begins filming across the Blue Mountains and Southern Highlands
Rudi Dharmalingam (Tin Star, The Split), Mandy McElhinney (Bad Mothers, Squinters) and Geraldine Hakewill (Wanted, Miss Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries) lead the cast of Jungle Entertainment’s new drama for ABC and BBC studios, Wakefield, which has started filming in the Southern Highlands and the Blue Mountains.
The eight-part drama series is a psychological mystery, created by Kristen Dunphy (The Principal), directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse (The Dressmaker) and Kim Mordaunt (The Rocket), with showrunners Kristen Dunphy and Sam Meikle.
Grainne Brunsdon, Head of Screen NSW was thrilled the production had commenced, “Given the recent bushfire devastation that the Blue Mountains and parts of the Southern Highlands have experienced, we’re delighted that this production will help to bring welcome investment in the areas and help a number of local businesses during filming,” she said.
