EXCLUSIVE: Ciarán Hinds (Belfast) and Odessa Young (Mothering Sunday) are among the cast joining Jacob Elordi in the Prime Video Australia Original series The Narrow Road to the Deep North, a TV adaptation of Richard Flanagan’s Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name. Production on the new 5-part drama series kicked off Down Under today.

Also rounding out the cast are Olivia DeJonge (Elvis), Heather Mitchell (Love Me), Thomas Weatherall (Heartbreak High), Show Kasamatsu (Tokyo Vice), Charles An (Pacific Rim: Uprising) and Simon Baker (Limbo).

Elordi has returned home to Australia to play the lead role of the younger Dorrigo Evans in the 1940s. Young will portray Amy Mulvaney, DeJonge will portray younger Ella and Baker will portray Keith. Fast-forward to the 1980s, the series will feature Hinds as the older Dorrigo and Mitchell as older Ella. Weatherall will portray Frank Gardiner, Kasamatsu will portray Major Nakamura and Charles An will portray The Goanna.

Set against the shadows of World War II, The Narrow Road to the Deep North tells the epic story of Lieutenant Dorrigo Evans, and how his all-too-brief love affair with Amy Mulvaney shaped his life. The story is told over multiple time periods, as we journey from Evans’ childhood to his experience as a prisoner-of-war on the Thailand-Burma Railway as a young man, and later in life, as a respected surgeon and Australian war hero.

According to a release, the series is a love story to sustain audiences through the darkest of times, an intimate character study illustrating the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity, and an investigation into a marriage and an unforgettable love affair.

The series will launch on Prime Video in Australia, New Zealand and Canada and will be distributed internationally by Sony Pictures Television. It is produced by Curio Pictures in Australia. Working with Curio Pictures’ executive producers Jo Porter and Rachel Gardner, the series is adapted by Justin Kurzel and Shaun Grant, who are both executive producers, with Kurzel directing and Grant serving as writer. Alexandra Taussig is producing.

“With talents like Jacob Elordi, Ciarán Hinds and Odessa Young at the helm, The Narrow Road to the Deep North promises to be a cinematic, visceral, and undeniable contemporary love story, which explores the power of mateship and the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity,” said Sarah Christie, senior development executive at Amazon MGM Studios. “We just know that this series is going to resonate with customers in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, and are proud to be partnering with Curio Pictures’ Jo Porter and Rachel Gardner, who will bring this incredible story to life alongside the award-winning director and executive producer Justin Kurzel, and writer and executive producer Shaun Grant.”

“Curio is incredibly proud to be producing The Narrow Road to the Deep North. The power of the storytelling, which began with Richard Flanagan’s seminal novel; the brilliance of the creative team, led by Justin Kurzel and Shaun Grant; and our breathtakingly accomplished cast will make this a landmark production for Australian television and a sweeping story to be embraced by audiences around the world,” added Curio Pictures’ Jo Porter and Rachel Gardner.

Principal production funding is provided by Screen Australia, with assistance from the NSW Government through Screen NSW’s Made in NSW and PDV Funds.
