Sigrid Thornton and John Howard reprise their roles as Laura Gibson and Bob Jelly in Australia’s most treasured drama series, SeaChange, which commenced production today.
After the breakup of her marriage and then losing her job, Laura (Thornton) finds herself questioning her place in the world. But when she returns to the beachside paradise of Pearl Bay after 20 years, she learns that her family and her town need her as much as she needs them.

A stellar cast joins the multi-award-winning series: Brooke Satchwell(Wonderland, Packed to the Rafters), Dan Wyllie (Romper Stomper, No Activity, Gallipoli, Tangle), Darren McMullen (House Husbands, The Voice Australia), Katrina Milosevic (Wentworth, Winners & Losers, Offspring), Ella Newton (Playing for Keeps, Neighbours, Newton’s Law), Kate Lister (Bad Mothers, Neighbours) and Alex Tarrant (800 Words, Shortland Street).

Also returning to Pearl Bay is Heather Jelly, Bob’s estranged wife, played by Kerry Armstrong (The Wrong Girl, Halifax f.p., Blue Heelers), and local business owner Kev Findlay, played by Kevin Harrington (Underbelly, The Wrong Girl, The Dish). Original creator and head writer, Deb Cox, returns as executive producer alongside Sigrid Thornton, Fiona Eager, David Mott and Nine’s Andy Ryan and Jo Rooney. Lois Randall is producer with Wayne Blair as set up director.

SeaChange is an Every Cloud Productions and ITV Studios Australia production for Nine, with major production investment from Screen Australia and financed with support from Create NSW. It is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
