Australia’s Seven to Air BBC Drama Hard Sun


The pre-apocalyptic drama Hard Sun has been licensed by FremantleMedia International into Australia, where the series will air on Seven.

Set in modern-day London, the six-part drama is written by Neil Cross, creator of Luther, and stars Jim Sturgess and Agyness Deyn. Following the broadcast premiere on Seven, viewers will then have the option to binge the remaining episodes anytime, anywhere on 7Plus.

Angus Ross, the director of network programming at Seven, said: “Seven is always on the lookout for dramas that stand out from the crowd. Hard Sun is a thrilling story on an epic scale—this will be an intense and addictive show we feel will resonate across the screens of Seven.”

Paul Ridley, the senior executive VP of sales and distribution for Australia, New Zealand and Japan at FremantleMedia International, commented: “I’m excited to be working with Seven to bring Hard Sun to Australian audiences. Full of complex characters, this is a truly distinctive, well-acted and brilliantly written crime drama by an exceptional storyteller, Neil Cross.”
