Its going to be a six part drama series for a Australian channel, will focus on four characters whose paths cross when they are caught up in Australia’s immigration system and held in one of Australia’s desert-based detention centres.
The story is reflecting the on going crisis of the refugees and even the characters in the series, a flight attendant fleeing a cult, an Afghan refugee, a down-and-out Australian father and a bureaucrat entangled in a scandal.
Blanchett will also act as executive producer on Stateless along with her husband. The show will appeal for the global audience, Cate Blanchett said while the story was focused on Australia, it explored global themes: “The desire for personal freedom, the need for social stability, an escalating lack of faith in the political process and the deeply unsettling impact this has on individual lives.”
Stateless will begin production in South Australia in June and is expected to air in 2020.
