Mr Inbetween, FX Australia’s first local commission of an Australian TV series, has commenced shooting in various locations in and around Sydney. 

Mr Inbetween is inspired by the critically acclaimed 2005 feature film The Magician, created, written by and starring Scott Ryan. Ryan reprises the role as deadpan hit-man Ray Shoesmith and also serves as the series writer.

Driven by dark humour and off-beat conversation, the series follows charismatic, yet volatile hitman Ray Shoesmith, as he navigates his chilling business while also maintaining friendships, parental responsibilities, and a fledgling romance.

Produced by Michele Bennett and executive produced by Jason Burrows, Nash Edgerton and Scott Ryan, it is a collaboration between Jungle (Here Come the HabibsThe Moody’s, No Activity) and the Blue-Tongue Films collective (The GiftWish You Were HereThe Square). Nash directs, in his debut as a TV series director.

Create NSW CEO Michael Brealey said “We’re delighted to be involved in making Sydney the home of FX Australia’s first local production, which is great news for NSW based creative practitioners working in a global context. With Nash Edgerton leading an impressive cast with his directorial TV debut, we can’t wait to see Scott Ryan’s darkly comic world brought onto the small screen in what is sure to be edgy and entertaining television.”

Mr Inbetween is a Jungle and Blue-Tongue Films production for FX Australia, with funding support from Screen Australia and Create NSW. It will premiere in Australia on FX in early 2018, exclusively on Foxtel and Foxtel Now.

FX Australia is a part of the global FX brand owned by Fox Networks Group. International distribution for Mr Inbetween will be handled by Fox Networks Group, London.
