HBO Max has hopped on board the upcoming BBC One thriller The Tourist. The platform will co-produce the series, as well as serve as its US streaming home upon release.

The six-episode limited series follows a man with amnesia pursued by dangerous forces from his past. Award-winning producers/screenwriters Harry and Jack Williams wrote and produced the series via their Two Brothers production company (Baptiste, Fleabag).

“Harry and Jack’s talents are as vast as the Australian outback, and this thriller will leave viewers on the edge of their seat piecing together the puzzle,” said Jeniffer Kim, Senior Vice President of International Originals at HBO Max.

Here’s the official description of The Tourist from HBO Max:

Jamie Dornan stars as a British man who finds himself in the glowing red heart of the Australian outback being pursued by a vast tank truck trying to drive him off the road. An epic cat and mouse chase unfolds and the man later wakes in hospital, hurt, but somehow alive. Except he has no idea who he is. With merciless figures from his past pursuing him, The Man’s search for answers propels him through the vast and unforgiving outback. 

The series also stars Danielle Macdonald as Helen Chambers, a fledgling Probationary Constable, and Shalom Brune-Franklin as Luci, a waitress who’s swept into The Man’s journey for answers. Hugo Weaving plays Agent Lachlan Rogers, one of the most highly regarded detective inspectors in Australia, leading Major Crime for the state police.

“The Tourist are some of the most exciting scripts I’ve ever read. I can’t wait to go to Australia with such a talented group of people,” said Dornan.

The series begins filming soon in Australia.
