Set in a hospital in the spectacular Blue Mountains outside Sydney, WAKEFIELD tackles the taboo subject of mental illness head on. It does so through an ensemble of unique characters each with their own story. At its centre is a psychological mystery: Nik Katira (Rudi Dharmalingam), a gifted psychiatric nurse, is the most stable person in what tends to be a pretty crazy place. But right now his grip on his own sanity is slipping. The question is…why?
The series also features Mandy McElhinney, Geraldine Hakewill, Ryan Corr, Harriet Dyer and Wayne Blair.
WAKEFIELD is a Jungle Entertainment production in partnership with BBC Studios for the ABC.
Writers Kristen Dunphy, Sam Meikle, Joan Sauers and Cathy Strickland. Directors Jocelyn Moorhouse and Kim Mordaunt.
The series will be available to binge on ABC iview from Friday April 2.
