HBO Asia's much-anticipated first original TV drama series 'Serangoon Road', starring Australian Don Hany, is set to premiere this Sunday 22 September at 9pm (SG time).
Serangoon Road is the first co-production between Singapore and Australia, with filming having taken place in Singapore and at Infinite Studios on Batam Island, Indonesia. It will go to air in Australia on ABC TV.
Hany (Offspring, Underbelly, East West 101) plays the leading role of detective Sam Callaghan, alongside fellow Australian Maeve Dermody, Singaporeans Chin Han and Lim Kay Tong, and Chinese actress Joan Chen.
The 10-epoisode series, created and produced by Australian Paul Barron, is a fast-paced detective series set against the exotic, tumultuous backdrop of 1960s Singapore.
The series is financed by ABC TV, ScreenWest, Singapore’s Media Development Authority, HBO Asia and Content Television, with Australian and Singaporean nationals as producers, writers, actors and crew, and with post-production work carried out in Perth and Sydney.
The Australia-Singapore Film Co-production Agreement forged in 2008 and the Australian Government’s ‘Australia in the Asian Century’ White Paper both focus on fostering cultural development between Singapore and Australia.
