Fremantle announced a new production, “Significant Others,” the latest original scripted series from Fremantle Australia. Set to air in Australia in 2022 on ABC TV, the six-part series is created by award-winning writer Tommy Murphy and it will be internationally distributed by Fremantle.

“Significant Others” tells the intriguing story of a single mother who fails to return home from her morning swim, leaving behind two teenagers and a fractured family searching for clues in the rubble of the catastrophe. Putting the pieces together is the awakening that threatens to tear this family apart.

“‘Significant Others’ is a character-driven series with an undertow of intrigue. It follows a family tearing each other apart over a missing loved-one. It is equally about how they put themselves back together. I am thrilled to be working with such an experienced, brilliant team on this story,” said Tommy Murphy, creator and writer.

Executive producers, Chris Oliver-Taylor, CEO Asia Pacific Fremantle, and Justin Davies, added: “‘Significant Others’ is a triumphant, edge of your seat series full of intrigue and suspense about a very contemporary family scrambling to rebuild from catastrophe. Beautifully crafted by Tommy Murphy, we are excited to work with our broadcast partner in Australia, the ABC and Fremantle International to see the series come to life in 2022”.

Lastly, Sally Riley, Head of Drama, Comedy & Indigenous at ABC, commented: “It is our absolute pleasure to be working with Tommy Murphy on this captivating drama that provides surprising insights into grief, family and loss. We are proud to be uniting with our production partners to bring 'Significant Others' to ABC audiences next year”.
