FX has added the half-hour drama Mr Inbetween to its roster of primetime shows. The series was created and written by Scott Ryan (The Magician), with Ryan, Damon Herriman (Justified), Justin Rosniak (Animal Kingdom), Brooke Satchwell (Footballer Wants a Wife), Jackson Tozer (The Ex-PM), Nicholas Cassim (Home and Away), Chika Yasumura, and Matt Nable (Incarnate, Hyde & Seek) starring.
Nash Edgerton (Gringo, The Square) directs the series which was shot in Australia. Mr Inbetween‘s a Blue-Tongue Films, Jungle Entertainment, FX Productions, Screen Australia, and Create NSW production.
“Mr Inbetween is an extraordinary achievement for Scott Ryan, who took it from an indie film with a cult following to a half-hour drama that he stars in,” stated Eric Schrier. President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. “Scott is one of those rare creators who can bring his own character to life on screen, and he is perfectly paired with Nash Edgerton, who brilliantly directed all six episodes. This project is a great inaugural step with Foxtel as the home of FX Original Series in Australia.”
Mr Inbetween is expected to air on FX and Australia’s Foxtel this fall. Season one consists of six episodes and was produced by Michele Bennett and executive produced by Scott Ryan, Nash Edgerton, and Jason Burrows.
“I couldn’t be happier to be sharing Scott Ryan’s character Ray with as many people as possible, and Scott and I couldn’t be more excited to have Mr Inbetween on FX and Foxtel,” said director/executive producer Nash Edgerton.
The Plot: In Mr Inbetween, Scott Ryan plays Ray Shoesmith, a father, ex-husband, boyfriend and best friend: tough roles to juggle in the modern age. Even harder when you’re a criminal for hire.
