LOST Media Mentions - DarkUFO

Network Ten and Southern Star John Edwards have announced a new Australian drama series RUSH to be produced in Melbourne.

RUSH is a contemporary action drama series set in a critical incident police unit; providing an insider's view of police under pressure. Our heroes are a mobile squad trained to be smarter, tactically superior and technologically advantaged.

RUSH features an ensemble cast including Rodger Corser (The Starter Wife, Last Man Standing, Underbelly), Callan Mulvey (Underbelly, Heartbreak High, Home and Away), Catherine McClements (The Secret Life Of Us, Mary Bryant, After the Deluge) and Claire Van Der Boom (Love My Way, East West 101), RUSH is a Southern Star John Edwards production, and will be produced by John Edwards (The Secret Life of Us, Love My Way, Out Of The Blue) and Mimi Butler (Forensic Investigators, Blue Water High).

"TEN gave us the opportunity to break new ground in drama with The Secret Life of Us and now we've been given that kind of opportunity all over again," said John Edwards (producer).

Mimi Butler (producer) added, "It's exciting to be part of the next generation of action based drama. It's a very sexy cast, gun writers and a great chance to push the storytelling."

Executive Producer, Drama and Production, Network Ten, Rick Maier said: "Tonally this is a perfect fit for us. The idea is clean, the characters are complex, and the production team is the best in the business."

“It's also terrific to be working again with Script Producer Chris Lee (Police Rescue, The Secret Life Of Us). As with Secret Life of Us, the scripts are the key to a great series, and the writing team for RUSH is one of the best you will see. With Andrew Prowse (Farscape, Wildside, McLeod's Daughters) to direct, and the sensational calibre of this cast we're hopeful RUSH will have an immediate impact for the audience."

Film Victoria CEO, Sandra Sdraulig, welcomes the production to Victoria saying, "We are thrilled that John Edwards and his team chose to film the series here. We look forward to working with the cast and crew, and believe Victoria's quality locations and skilled practitioners will contribute significantly to the success of the production."

Production of RUSH will be based in Victoria and will commence in May 2008.
