Internationally acclaimed, award-winning actress Cate Blanchet will be at Content London to debut her new six-part limited series, Stateless.

Joining Blanchett for this exclusive Case Study at the International Drama Summit will be Jeff Watchtel, president, NBCUniversal International Studios, Alastair McKinnon, MD, Matchbox Pictures and actor Fayssal Bazzi.

Co-created by Cate Blanchett, Tony Ayres and Elise McCredie, Stateless is a powerful and timely series about four strangers whose lives collide at an immigration detention centre in the middle of the Australian desert. It centres on an airline hostess on the run from a dangerous cult, an Afghan refugee and his family fleeing persecution, a young father escaping a dead-end job and a bureaucrat running out of time to contain a national scandal. Each character deals with the contradictions of protection and border control from a unique perspective, offering topical insight into issues that countries are grappling with around the world.

Commissioned by the ABC and backed by Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation, the six-part limited series stars a multi award-winning cast including Yvonne Strahovski, Jai Courtney, Asher Keddie, Fayssal Bazzi, Dominic West and Cate Blanchett. It is a co-production between NBCUniversal International Studios’ Matchbox Pictures and Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton’s Dirty Films, written by Elise McCredie and Belinda Chayko.
