A Place To Call Home
During last night’s The X Factor episode, Seven gave its audience a first look at the network’s newest local production.
The period drama, A Place To Call Home is from Bevan Lee, the creator of Seven’s other flagship drama, Packed to the Rafters.
The series, set in a manor in Australia in 1953, is described by Seven’s head of drama, Julie McGauran as “a sweeping grand production and our most ambitious yet.”
The show will go out in 2013.
The cast was announced in July and includes Noni Hazlehurst, Frankie J Holden, Marta Dusseldorp of Crownies and Brett Climo.
Bevan Lee previously described it as “above all a ripping emotional yarn about a woman fighting to find a place to call home and a wealthy family being challenged by a changing Australia. In learning to live again, Sarah brings new life and inspiration to all around her, especially the Bligh family.”
Seven has found ratings success with other in-house productions such as Packed To The Rafters and Winners and Losers.
